Two Prehistoric Caves Identified in Qasr-e Shirin

 

16 February 2006

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archeological excavations in the city of Qasr-e Shirin resulted in the discovery of two caves belonging to the Neolithic and the Middle Elamite periods.

“Two caves were discovered in the southern foothills of Bazidar Mountains, one of them dates back to some 9,000 years ago that is Neolithic and the other belongs to the Middle Elamite period and contemporary to the Iron Age in Zagros and Central Iranian Plateau. 

 

A large number of stone tools have also been discovered in a small cave during the excavations. The depth and the opening of this cave are both 6 meters and it seems that it was used as a shelter.
