12,000 historical objects held in the prehistoric treasury of Iran's National Museum were categorized based on the archaeological sites of their discovery.

In the previous years, the archaeological finds entering the prehistoric treasury of the museum were categorized based on individual numbers assigned to them, which made the collection somehow unsystematic.

Therefore following the equipment of the store rooms and transfer of objects from the prehistoric section to the new treasuries, they were categorized based on their digging sites, explained official in charge of the prehistoric objects of the National Museum Nasrin Zehtab.

The objects have been categorized and organized based on two factors: their discovery site and then their material. In addition, the compilation of historical and geographical information about the ancient archaeological sites related to the prehistoric times is underway.

According to Zehtab, items with unknown backgrounds are being studied to ascertain their identification and revise incorrect information. So far 75 percent of the project has been completed.
