CNRS Paleontologists Study Damavand Foothills

 

16 June 2005

 

 

The paleontology group of France's ‍CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) has started a series of paleontology and anthropology studies on the city of Amol and Damavand Foothills.

The CNRS team has also carried out some paleontology and anthropology research in the central province of Yazd.

According to Farzad Forouzanfar, anthropologist with Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO), Alborz range and Damavand foothills are important sites considering paleontology information, but so far no comprehensive work has been carried out in the region, giving the CNRS research great significance.

Amol city located in the northern province of Mazandaran, will be the first target of the CNRS studies in Damavand foothills. “The CNRS team has started its work in Amol and will continue southward covering all areas en route to capital Tehran,” explained Forouzanfar.
