LONDON, (CAIS) -- The first season of palaeontological studies has begun by an Iranian-French team in Amol city of Mazandardan, head of Amol Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department told ISNA Persian service.


Valiollah Chalabi stated that the one-month palaeontological excavations in Amol aim to study emigration patterns of humans during the Pleistocene Epoch. Iranian anthropologist Farzad Fourouzanfar together with a professor from Sorbonne University also take part in the studies.


The Pleistocene is usually dated from between 1.8-1.6 million to about 10,000 years ago, with the end date expressed in radiocarbon years.


According to Chalabi, 200 discovered objects including pieces of bone and stone tools testify that human beings settled there.


He added that Amol had been the capital of the Caspian province in a period spanning from Sasanid dynastic era to Mogul invasion.


Preliminary palaeontological studies conducted in the area in 2005 revealed that the targeted sites belong to prehistoric period.
