Finding Neolithic Artefacts in Qomrood Hill More Likely

 

31 July 2004

 

 

It is more likely to unearth artifacts dating back the Neolithic Age in the Qomrood Hill, in central Iran, and to identify the remains in the nearby cemetery, Iranian archaeologists said.


The historical hill, measuring 300*27*11 meters, is located in Iran’s central plateau. Working in the site since 1998, archaeologists have recognized the environmental conditions and now believe it dates from 12,000 years ago. The hill probably had not been a permanent habitat, but rather a resting settlement. Qomrood is situated northeast of the holy city of Qom.


“The 8th season of excavation, aimed at the deeper layers, would start in early October, and hopefully it could lead to the discovery of some Neolithic artifacts,” said Mirabedin Kaboli, head of the archaeologists. “We have so far dug out 3.65 m from the 11-meter hill height, revealing 6 layers. They all indicate the site dates back 6850 years ago (roughly early 5th millennium BC).”


Archaeologists have already uncovered some earthenware and stone tools as well as some ornaments made of copper, though they have not yet found any copper vessels. In spite of some anthropological studies, it is yet a mystery that who used to live there.
