Neolithic site has been unearthed at Gavkhooni Swamp
in the southeastern part of Isfahan
province, reported IRNA.
Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department in
Isfahan province said that the latest findings
pointed to the existence of an ancient
civilization in the region.
“Influenced by the ancient civilizations in the
region, major cities have been established
throughout history along the banks of
Zayandeh-roud River,“ the department said.
Archeological studies will continue to determine
the layers of ancient civilizations.
Zayandeh-roud River rises in the mountains of
Chalgard in Chahar Mahal-Bakhtiari province and
flows through hundreds of villages, towns and
cities irrigating farmlands before pouring into
Gavkhooni Swamp in the southeast of Isfahan
The river has contributed to the formation of many
ancient civilizations along its entire course.
