French Team Discovers 50,000-Year-Old Settlement in Damavand area

 

25 June 2005

 

 

The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) has recently discovered evidence of a settlement of people who lived in the Damavand (misty mountain) area 50,000 years ago.

 

Anthropologist Farzad Foruzanfar said on Sunday that the French team discovered the settlement during their recent studies at the foot of Mount Damavand.

 

He added that the center is currently conducting additional studies in the area and plans to extend the work toward the city of Damavand.

 

“The Alborz Mountains and Mount Damavand are of great importance to paleontologists, but no serious study had been carried out in the region. The French team is now diligently conducting the study.

 

“The study will cover the Tehran region as well in order to learn more about lifestyles in prehistoric times,” he said.

 

He also stated that the team had previously carried out research projects in Yazd Province, leading to the discovery of cave dwellings established several thousand years ago.
