An Antiquarian Skeleton Remains Found in Western Iran

Prehistory

In an unexpected surprise, archaeologists busy setting the perimeters of the Kurijan historical hill in the western province of Hamedan came across remains of a skeleton from the Bronze Age.

The skeleton remains along with a few pottery pieces were discovered inside a grave before being transferred to the Hegmatana museum in Hamedan.

Head of the explorations teams in the area said preliminary studies were being conducted on the skeleton with DNA tests planned.

"We are expecting an osteologist to join us to carry out sampling of the bones, in order to determine its sex and other features" Esma'il Ivaki said.

The find was made accidentally as a regional canal was dug. The set of porcelain found reveals information about the Bronze Age.

The Kurijan hill dates back to the third and second millennia B.C.
