Ancient Artefacts Unearthed in Marand

 

10 June 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- A development project in Kouzegaran Bazaar of Marand led to the discovery of unique historical objects.


As reported by ISNA, a pile of potsherds, earthen ovens as well as archaic tools were found in a depth of five meters by construction workers. A number of the antiques were damaged as a result of digging operations.


A researcher of Marand history, East Azarbaijan province, believes that the historic objects hint at the existence of a major age-old civilization.


Hedayat Seyyed Marand further expanded that physical specifications of the objects resemble those of the 13th century antiques.


“Lapse of time and geographical changes have caused the objects, which once belonged to people living in the region, to be buried in sedimentary soil,“ he explained.


The researcher warned against an upward rise in destruction of Marand historical venues. He regretted that lack of control over urban constructions by the regime had put the historical identity of the 7000-year-old city in great danger
