4000-year-old Skeletons Found in Southern Iran




20 July 2003

A group of archeology students have unearthed three human skeletons in southern Iran thought to be some 4,000 years old.

The spectacular finds made by a number of students from the Azad university in Kazerun surfaced in the Tal Bandu historical hill in Mamasani in southern province of Fars.

One undamaged skeleton belongs to a man some 18-25 years old and 180 centimeter tall, flanked by a scrambled one. The third is that of a woman.

Other discoveries include a double edged piece of stone, which was probably used for writing, some stone blades used for harvesting and a number of pottery utensils. They are believed to be dating back some 2000 years.

The Tal Bandu hill covers an area of 9 kms.
