Archaeologists have come across relics from some 7,000 years ago in the second season of explorations in Jorjan near Gonbad Kavous in northeastern province of Golestan.

Head of the explorations team Mohammad Mortezai said the last explorations season in 2002 rendered red pottery bearing designs in black believed to date back to the fifth millennium B.C.

"In addition, figurines of animals and humans bearing black and creamy designs plotted against a reddish background, were found," he noted.

Among other finds in the first season are grey pottery pieces analogous to the Iron Age porcelain in the central plain.

Located near the city of Gonbad Kavous, it covers an area of 1500 hectares. Jorjan was erected on remains of a city from the Sasanid era. It experienced its heyday in the Seljuk era.
