Iran Mulls Cooperation of International Experts in Stone Age Historical Sites Research


News Category:


 12 April 2004



International archaeologists have announced readiness to help their Iranian counterparts find missing links in the Stone Age and the transition from the Sasanians to the Islamic period.

The historical sites, pertaining to the transition from the Sasanian to the Islamic time, are relatively intact places where little studies have been carried out. Still, they are considered among the richest historical sites.

A Deputy ICHO Director Jalil Golshan said talks were held with archaeologists from the US, Belgium, Germany and some other countries on the sidelines of a Middle East archaeology conference held in Berlin recently and they stressed their readiness for cooperation.

Golshan noted given the lack of specialized archaeologists and resources, the Stone Age historical sites have not been fully explored.

So far Iranian archaeologists have carried out explorations in some sites. The vast, numerous sites have led to some missing links and the hope is that the international archaeologists could help find them.

Golshan is supposed to conduct talks on finalizing the cooperation of international experts for the project over the coming months.

Iran is considered one of the richest countries as far as the Stone Age sites are concerned. Most of the sites are located in the provinces of Kermanshah, Lorestan and Khorasan, dating as far back as 10,000 B.C.

Among sites pertaining to the Sasanian-Islamic period are Tappeh Mil in Shahr-e Rey and Dareh Shahr in Ilam.
