Archaeological and geological studies carried out west of Esfahan have led to the discovery of the first Palaeolithic cave in the area.

An official with the local cultural heritage department said studies which focused on an area 30 km west of Esfahan near Zayandehrud river rendered a cave dating back to the Palaeolithic era as well as some stone tools and bone remains.

Mohsen Javari noted this was the first discovered Palaeolithic cave in the area which could provide answer to many lingering questions.

The experts are busy examining the stone tools found in the cave. Meanwhile, preliminary studies on the bones suggest they belonged to animals such as turtles, horses and goat.

Further extensive studies are expected to be carried out in the cave soon
