Stone Age Artifacts Discovered in Semnân



Sunday, 29 July 2001



TEHRAN -- Archaeologists have discovered Stone Age tools in the northern part of Iran's Central Plateau for the first time. Previously, archaeologists had discovered Stone Age tools in Niâsar in the northwest of the plateau.


These findings prove that primitive Stone Age men lived in the region. According to archaeologist Hassan Rezvâni, these tools were made 250,000 years ago by Stone Age men using a stone cutting technique called Lua-Lua.


Experts from the CHO (Cultural Heritage Organization) believe that Mirak, the vast area in southern Semnân Province where the tools were found, was used by Stone Age men either as a tool-making workshop or as a seasonal camp.


Excavations began in Mirak in 1992.
