Ancient City Excavated in Golestan Province

 

News Category: Sasanian Dynasty

TEHRAN - A city dating back to the Sasanian dynasty was unearthed in Iran's northern province of Golestan.

 

According to the archeological research conducted, it is thought that the ancient city, named Tamsheh, was built during the reign of Khosrow Anoushakruwân, the Sasanian Emperor. An archeologist with the provincial Cultural Heritage Department, Dr. Chegini, said that the remnants of the city include a castle and the ruins of its fortified walls.

 

The city of Tamsheh was used as a military base during the Umayyad invasion of Iran. It was built near the sea to protect it from enemy attacks, and a great wall was also built around the central castle.

 

The city is referred to in history by the famous Iranian poet, Ferdowsi, in his masterpiece, Shahnameh (the Epic of Kings). It is said that between 1961 and 1964, Britain and Iranian archeologists began to study the history of the city.
