Parthian Town Discovered in Minab Plain, Hormozgan

 

27 April 2005

 

 

 

Iranian and British archeologists found a town dating back to Parthian dynasty while working on an archaeological site in Minab plain.

“The group was trying to revise the excavations in Minab plain when they found a Parthian city by accident. The findings of the recently found town will be rendered to Iran Archaeological Research Center after its limits are defined and marked”, head of the Iranian-British archaeological group, Alireza Khosro-zadeh, told CHN.

In the new round of their discoveries in Minab plain, two British archeologists from Durham University tried to study the information given by A. Williamson, a British archaeologist who wrote several books about his excavations in historical regions of Minab plain.

According to Iranian archaeologists working in the site during last year’s excavations, the age of Minab plain can be traced back to a hundred thousand year and it includes artifacts and monuments dating back to Islamic and pre-Islamic eras.

The last excavation session in the area was concluded in the second half of March and will be continued in the next year.
