“Currently we are conducting research in Konan, Tarhan and Darb-e Gonbad, and have managed to identify well over 100 historical sites. These sites including, prehistoric caves and archaeological mounds containing stuccos with geometrical designs”, Dehghanifar the head of Kuhdasht archaeological research team told news-reports.

 

“Due to the application of gypsum, usage of stucco and recovered potteries, we can date the identified sites to the Parthian and Sasanian dynasties”, he added.

"The progress of our works have been adequate.
