Excavations Reveal Jiroft Watermill

 

11 April 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeologists believe they have discovered one of the 150 watermills at Jiroft’s historical site.


The head of excavation team, Hamideh Choubak, told reporters that excavations led to a pillar-like structure which is most probably one of the watermills of the ancient city.


She pointed out that according to history textbooks, ancient Jiroft had 150 watermills.


Choubak further said that a section of the city’s bath and designs showing a partial figure of a woman playing a musical instrument carved on a wall have also been discovered.


She said the woman’s clothing matches that of the Seljuk era and is also reminiscent of Sasanid and Parthian dynastic eras.
