 Kuramar 3000 years old warrior

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archeological excavations in Talesh, Gilan province, led to the discovery of a skeleton belonging to a high ranking military commander who lived 3,000 years ago in the province’s Kuramar Village.


Head of the archeological team in Merian, Mohammad Reza Khalatbari, said the man held a sword in his left hand. From the pommel to central-ridge of the sword was placed on his chest,  and from central ridge to foible and point rests over his face, Persian Service of CHN reported on Thursday 07.


“Although swords were found buried with skeletons, none of them held a sword,“ he added.
Khalatbari noted that archeological excavations in the historical site and the weaponry objects discovered reveal that the people were warriors.


The number of cemeteries found in the region also indicates the region’s high population and conflicts that took place there.

 

Archaeologist also have discovered from the grave, a large dagger, number of ceramic vessels and a rhyton in shape of a reptile, possibly a snake, which the head is missing.
