As the last season of explorations drew to a close in a historical area near the town of Oshnaviyeh in the province of West Azarbaijan, a number of valuable artifacts from the pre-historic to the Islamic period were discovered.

Reyhaneh Afifi, a member of the Oshnaviyeh archeological group, said the recent explorations focused on the plain and mountains, with the studies in the plain carrying more weight.

"The most significant find was an intact utensil from the Iron age. In addition, a number of stone tools and scraps were unearthed, which indicated the area used to be a hub for making stone tools in the Neolithic age," she noted.
