Kermanshah Caves Among Earliest Human Dwellings

 

23 April 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Latest studies on the pre-historic caves in Kermanshah province have revealed that the caves were once the dwellings of the Neanderthals some 40-85 thousand years ago.


Announcing this, head of the provincial Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department Asadollah Beyranvand told ISNA that research works conducted by joint teams from Iran and-France confirmed the same.


The team has also undertaken studies at Mahabad caves in West Azarbaijan province and Niasar and Gharyafteh caves in Lorestan province, but the caves in Kermanshah province including Mertarik and Merdoder caves have been subject to more intense studies, said Beyranvand.


Mertarik Cave, which has an area of 80 square meters, is situated on the foot of Bisotoon Mountain, some 30 kilometers from Kermanshah city.


Evidence found in caves such a Merkhrel, Mertarik and Shekarchian reveal that the area was one of the earliest human settlements.
