40 Skeletons, Date Back to First Millennium BCE Discovered in Narges Tepe

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeological excavations in Narges Tepe historical site in the Iranian northern province of Golestan led to the discovery of 40 skeletons, most probably belonging to the first millennium BCE.

“40 skeletons and some architectural remains were discovered during the archaeological excavations in Narges Tepe. However, more studies are required to determine the exact date of these skeletons. The burial method used for these skeletons will also be announced after more accurate studies,” said Ghorban Ali Abbasi, head assistant of Narges Tepe excavation team.

Based on the previous excavations and according to what Mahmoud Rabiei, executive director of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department of Golestan province, had said about Narges Tepe, this historical hill dates back to some 3000 years ago. “Discovered relics such as clay jars in this historical site have strengthened the theory that Narges Tepe should have been a village during the first millennium BCE,” explained Rabiei.

According to Abbasi, previously only some soundings were done in this historical site and this is the first time a systematic archaeological excavation is being carried out in Narges Tepe. However, he refused to give more detailed information due to security reasons and referred further announcements to the end of the excavations in Narges Tepe.

Archaeological excavations in Narges Tepe have been started since two months ago and will continue to 4th of July. However, Abbasi believes that these excavations will extend to August.
