Experts restoring an old house in the Anjareh village in the northwestern Iranian province of East Azarbaijan recently came up with a surprising find which is believed to be remains of the bones of a mammoth.

The bones, estimated to be some five million years ago, are now kept in the yard of another local house, pending investigation by the environment organization. Head of the local cultural heritage department Akbar Taqizadeh said they have asked the organization to dispatch experts to conduct studies on the bones.

"The discovery of the bones of the giant animal, unprecedented in the province, is very significant in that it can tell interesting points about the life million of years ago," he remarked.
