Karoun-3 Artifacts Bound for National Museum

 

 

 

12 September 2005

 

Unique artifacts, unearthed from the historical site which was submerged by the reservoir of Karoun-3 Dam, will soon be transferred to Iran National Museum.


According to the Persian daily Jam-e Jam, more than 36 pieces of artifacts including pottery, metal tools such as arrowheads, javelins and buckles as well as swords and knives and ornamental metallic items like metal pins used in women’s hairdressing were displayed on the sidelines of recent one-day Conference on Archeology of Karoun-3 Dam.


Meanwhile, head of Iran National Museum Mohammad Reza Karegar said that the antiques unearthed from the site will be delivered to the museum.
Excavations, which were led by archeologist Jafar Mehr-Kian, conducted before the reservoir was filled in November 2004 succeeded in unearthing first-grade antiquities from the area, Karegar said.


Mehr-Kian said that the excavations have been very successful in unearthing precious artifacts.


He said that maintenance of the artifacts should be of prime importance because if they were kept in substandard conditions, they would be exposed to destruction.
