8,000 Year Old Human Settlement Signs Found in Northwestern Iran

 

21 May 2004

 

 

Studies carried out in the East Azarbaijan province have led to the discovery of some 1,000 historical sites from the 6th millennium B.C. until the Pahlavi dynasty.

The northwestern province has been a place for human settlement since millennia B.C. given its particular climatic conditions. Still little systematic studies have been conducted in the area.

An official with the local cultural heritage organization Mahsima Nehzati noted surveys started in 1991 and were not half way through rendering about 1,000 historical sites.

“Studies carried out in 19 towns have led to discovery of sites from the Neolithic period, i.e. the 6th millennia B.C. until the Pahlavi dynasty,” she added. “They include churches, Imamzadehs, historical sites, ancient cemeteries, etc.”

The studies are expected to take at least five years but there are signs to believe that relics may be found that may even predate the Neolithic era.
