International Seminar of Halilrood Civilization Inaugurated


01 February 2005



The international seminar for introduction of Jiroft civilization was inaugurated today, with head of the Iranian Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO), Governor of Kerman, Iranian and foreign archeologists, and some 2000 people of the area of Jiroft attending.

Jiroft civilization lived alongside the Halilrood river in the central province of Kerman some 5000 years ago and as head of ICHTO, Hussein Marashi said in the inauguration ceremony, it is considered one of the oldest in the world whose discovery adds to the Iran’s glories.

Referring to the lootings committed in the area, Marashi talked to people of the necessity to preserve and guard their heritage, which would provide them with an eternal infinite wealth.

Governor of Kerman, Mohammad Ali Karimi, explained that the importance of the area became known in 2001, just to be talked of today in an international level. He added that the area has now passed the hard times caused by looting and illegal excavation and entered a new era.

The international seminar of Halilrood civilization, which started its work today, aims at a better understanding and introduction of the discovered civilization of Jiroft and its ancient invaluable remains.
