16 July 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeologists have came across the ruins of a cemetery dating back to the the Iron Age II, during excavations to save some sections of the western and southwestern sides of Taleqani Archaeological Mound near Taleqan city.


According to Persian Service of CHN, excavations are being conducted at this part of the mound as part of efforts to reopen the city’s new boulevard.


Commenting on the findings of the research works at the mound, head of the excavation team of Taleqani Mound, Hossein Rezvani said, “We have managed to recover two skeletons dating back to the first millennium BCE along with grey dishes, bayonet, dagger as well as dishes bearing various designs.“


According to him, although the region has been destroyed during bulldozing operations in the area and deployment of Russian soldiers after WWII, excavations are being conducted so as to gather the remaining information from the mound.


Rezvani further said that a large number of the graves were destroyed in grading operations in 1988 by the Municipality, and only two graves have so far been found intact.


Taleqani Mound underwent archeological excavations for the first time in 2003 and the findings led to the suspension of the construction of the boulevard which traversed the mound
