LONDON, (CAIS) -- The team of archaeologists working at historical sites of Zanjan Province recently discovered several dishes and a brass arrowhead dating back to the Iron Age, the Persian service of CHN reported on Saturday.

 

The discoveries were made at the historical sites of Abhar and Khorramdarreh.

 

The archaeologists were surprised to discover Iron Age artifacts in Zanjan Province.

 

The director of the Abhar Cultural Heritage and Tourism Office said that the artifacts were found in an ancient cemetery near Abhar but gave no details about the exact location of the discovery.

 

Davud Abyan noted that during the previous  two stages of excavations at Abhar and Khorramdarreh, several sites and artifacts were found, adding, “Most of the finds date back to the prehistoric era and the Iron Age, including ancient cemeteries, tepes, caves, and ancient sites.”

 

He also said that twelve historical sites which date back to the Achaemenid and Parthian dynastic eras, as well as early Post-Sasanian era were found on the grounds of the Soltanieh Dome and expressed hope that the next stage of excavations would begin soon.
