British Expert Joins Research Project at Iron Age Site in Northeast Iran

 

News Category: Prehistory

 14 November 2005

 

 

Dr. Kirsi Lorentz, a British lecturer in environmental archaeology from the University of Newcastle, has joined Iranian experts working at the 3000-year-old cemetery of the ancient site of Kharand in Semnan Province, the Persian service of IRNA reported on Sunday.

 

Initial studies have been carried out on the site, but more surveys are needed to gain comprehensive information about the site and the people who lived there, Lorentz said.

 

Studies conducted on the cemetery show that the region’s inhabitants were nomads and who migrated between the southern coast of the Caspian Sea and the Semnan plain in summer and winter.

 

The team aims to determine the process of maturation of the region’s children during ancient times and to study the impact of the environment on this process by comparing their findings with the process in modern times, Lorentz explained.

 

Iranian archaeologists have unearthed the skeletons of 23 men, 10 women, and 2 children in the Iron Age graveyard, which is located 51 kilometers northeast of the city of Semnan.
