 21 October 2003

 

The third season of the archaeological excavations in the eastern Mazandaran province is set to start, aimed at looking into the cultures of Palaeolithic and Neolithic ages.

“In this season of archaeological excavations, we are going to discover and investigate cultures of Palaeolithic and Neolithic ages once existed in eastern Mazandaran, specifically an area between two Gamishan caves in eastern Behshahr”, said Forouzi, head of the archaeological team.

Concerning the objectives of these investigations, Forouzi said that the main purpose of these excavations include, finding all existing settlements in the spot, looking into their connection system and dispersal of the archaeological sites and their environmental relations as well as population growth in these areas in different eras.

Special methods such as geomorphology, ecological expertise and stone craftsmanship will be used in these excavations.

As for the conclusions drawn during these excavations in Gohar Hill and Rostamkola where relics from Iron and Bronze Ages have been found, archaeologists hope that outcome of these excavations, too, could be useful and efficient in probing the developments and growth of the societies from the Palaeolithic age to modern urban dwelling.
