French Archaeologists to Study Prehistoric Lifestyles in Northern Iran

 

08 May 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- A team of researchers and archaeologists from France’s Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique (CNRS) is heading to the provinces of Mazandaran and Semnan in late May to study prehistoric lifestyles in that region of northern Iran, the Persian service of CHN reported on Sunday.

 

The director of the Anthropology Department of the Iranian Center for Archaeological Research (ICAR), Farzad Foruzanfar, said that this will be the CNRS team’s second trip to Iran, during which they will continue their studies on the biological and geological changes of the Mesolithic era and the anthropological changes in Mazandaran Province.

 

The team previously discovered a prehistoric settlement during their recent studies at the foot of Mount Damavand, he added.

 

The Alborz Mountains and Mount Damavand are of great importance to palaeontologists, but no serious studies have been carried out in the region, Foruzanfar said.
