First Human Settlement Identified at Jaam

 

 

 

21 September 2005

 

The village of Jaam located on the northeastern part of Siraf, Iran, is the birthplace of human civilization, according to a US-based Iranian historian Badiheh Dashti.


She told ISNA that she conducted 10 years of research in Jaam and unearthed evidences which prove that it was the earliest habitat where first humans established dwellings.


Dashti said that she studied the Zoroastrian scripture Avesta, the Qur’an as well as the Jewish Torah and came to the conclusion that the earliest human civilization was located in southern Iran.


“There are some walls in the historical site built by Kayoomars, the first king of the Pishdadian dynasty. He also built part of the city of Persepolis (Estakhr).“


The historian said that she has managed to unearth the first human fossils from Jaam. It is the fossil of man, and not monkey, which dates back to over 13 million years ago.


“I can prove this in a 20-hour documentary film with the help of photos and theories.“


She further said that contrary to theories, the Aryan race did not migrate to Iran from other countries rather they were born in Iran. They made homes and they constructed the world’s first city.


“History books often present Noah’s ark and the prophet’s sons but my studies proved that Jaamshid-e Jaam, Iran, was the center of human civilization.


“Both the Torah and Avesta support my studies which proves Fars province of Iran was the origin of human civilization,“ she concluded.
