Archaeological excavations carried out in the historical site of Qoli Darvish near Qom in central Iran have rendered remains of iron foundries in the Iron Age. The findings are expected to cast light on the characteristics of the Iron Age in this area.

A member of the excavation team said diggings have led to significant findings about the Iron Age settlements as well as foundries.

Shirin Aqili noted the Qoli Darvish site could contribute to current understanding about the the Iron Age settlements and their characteristics.

"Finding foundries could furnish plenty of information about metal works in the Iron Age (the first millennium B.C.)," she said.
