American Archaeologist: Iran Founder of Human Civilization

 

 

Thursday, 03 May 2001

 


TEHRAN -- Holly Pitman, an American archaeologist and art professor at Pennsylvania State University in the United States, said on Thursday, "Iran is considered to be the founder of human civilization due to its historical and ancient monuments."

She added that the implementation of archaeological plans and projects is of great importance in increasing the knowledge of the people about their country's social and historical heritage.

 

Pitman said that archaeology is one of the important and undeniable principles of the dialogue among civilizations.

 

Pitman, who is carrying out archaeological activities on the historical monuments of Tapeh Yahya in Kerman Province, said that the activities of the media in introducing Iran's historical monuments to all the people in the world are important and effective.

 

Besides participating in archaeological activities, she suggested that young archaeologists should learn from experienced archaeologists in order to increase their knowledge.

 

Pitman added, "I have taught Iranian art and particularly Iran's archaeology in U.S. universities and the students have always welcomed it."  She said the fact that two American archaeologists who had worked on the ancient monuments of Iran wrote in their wills that they wanted to be buried beside these monuments is a sign of their love for Iran.
