LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archeological studies will begin in Semnan to determine human civilizations in the area during prehistoric and ancient periods.


Head of the archeological team, Kourosh Roustaei said that the studies will be conducted as part of a program called ’human beings and environment’ in the central Iranian plateau.


Last year, archeologists undertook excavations at Kalateh Khan and Qefkhaneh on Shahroud plain.


Roustaei told Persian Service of CHN that the program will be pursuant to research studies at Shahroud plain adding that over 51 historical sites dating back from the prehistoric times to the middle Islamic period have been studied and there is a possibility that excavations will be conducted beyond Semnan.


Asked to comment on the reason for selecting Semnan as a center for the archeology study ’human beings and environment’, he said that studies indicated that Semnan is similar to Shahroud where the excavations resulted in positive findings.


Roustaei said that he presented a comprehensive plan for one round of excavations at Semnan plain to the Archeology Research Center adding that a sum of 70 million rials has been envisaged for the project.


“Once funds are forthcoming, excavations at Semnan plain will begin from October,“ he added.
The archeologist said that there is possibility that one chapter of studies will be increased to two or more.


The Archeology Research Center will study the outcome of the excavations later
