New Discoveries in Zivieh Fortress

Prehistory

 23 January 2004

 

 

With the twelfth season of excavations completed in the historical fortress of Zivieh in Saghez area, in the western province of Kurdistan, the entrance door and stairway of the monument were unearthed.

During the previous seasons, experts had discovered parts of the main hallway of the fortress, and in the last one, by connecting them they found out the map of the entrance.

The map of the two storeys of the building, rooms with wooden ceilings, the yard, the eastern entrance with stone stairways, the guarding stand, pillars, hallways and halls were parts of the discoveries of the eleven previous excavation seasons.

The architecture style, the items, and metal pieces found in the area are indications of its existence at the time of the Mana people, who resided in Azarbaijan and Kurdistan in the first half of the millennium B.C.

Still, so many mysteries overshadow the old castle, which necessitate further excavations and studies.

The historical Zivieh Fortress is located 45 kilometres southeast of Saghez, on a hill 800 meters long and 140 meters high.
