Ancient Silos Found in Zivieh Castle

 

 

Sunday, 02 September 2001

 


TEHRAN -- Some ancient silos for foodstuff have been discovered in Zivieh Castle in Kurdestan Province by archeologists.

The cube-like silos, comparable with modern silos, are nine meters deep in brick platforms. Some seeds have been also found at the bottom of the silos.

 

Experts believe that the silos had been built in the lower part of the castle and their entrances are in the upper part of the castle. They are the oldest known silos in the country.

 

According to the Public Relations Office of the Cultural Heritage Organization, Zivieh Castle has been built established some 2,700 years ago. It has been built with bricks and its entrance and steps are from natural stone.
