Discovery of a Part of the Remainders of "Kohan Dedz Tus" in Mashad



01 February 2001



The research deputy of cultural inheritance organization of Khorasan reported the discovery of a part of the remainders of Kohan Dedz Tus, 25Km near Mashad. Khaniki said: 'This ancient site was discovered following the archaeological operations started some times ago in Arg (citadel) of Tus.

According to Khaniki, in addition to some pieces of potsherds and coins, the archaeologists have also discovered the framework of the early building of Kohan Dedz of Tus. In the upper part of Arg and in the area of Kohan Dedz (the Ancient Fort) there is a rectangular space, 70m in length and 40m in width with a big tower in all the corners. There are also some towers in the middle of the walls that apparently support the walls. The entrance or the gate was probably located in the western part of this space.'

Khaniki considered the role of this recently discovered site important for the subsequent studies and added: 'This ancient site will not only assist the archaeologist to acquire new architectural information, but it will be an interesting place for the tourists.
