Palaeolithic Stone Tools Found in Bushehr

Iranian archaeologists carrying out excavations on a hill near the Ahrom-Borazjan road in the southern Bushehr province have come across stone tools from the Palaeolithic age some 12000 years old. The six stone tools were discovered on the Gel Pokhti hill.

Hamid Zare'i head of the archaeological team said the finds were too few to provide enough information about the various aspects of the stone industry in the area. Still they were considered important in that they were the only such finds in the province. He expressed hope research on a wider scale in the long run could lead to more archaeological finds in the province.

The Gel Pokhti hill covers an area of 13,000 square meters with a maximum altitude of 30 meters. Various pottery pieces from the historical-Islamic era have also been found on the fringes of the hill.
