7,000 Year-Old Kilns Found in Bolaghi Valley

 

17 May 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Several pottery Kilns dating back to 5,000 BCE were discovered during excavations at Bolaghi Valley in the southern province of Fars.


Announcing this, co-chairman of Irano-German Excavation team Mojgan Seyyedin said that the structures included more than five Kilns the oldest of which is from the Bakun Period (5000-4000 BCE).


She said that the number of Kilns indicated that there were industrial workshops at Bolaghi Valley which is threatened by the construction of Sivand Dam.


Seyyedin said that since three of the Kilns were unearthed in tact, a decision has been made to put them on public display.


“We have decided to reinforce the structures at Bolaghi Valley and then transfer them to Pasargad Museum later on,“ she added.


Three Iranian, German and French archaeological teams are currently involved in excavation operations at Bolaghi Valley.
