23 April 2007

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Geophysical researches in Halqeh plain, located in Minu Dasht city, eastern Golestan province, resulted in identifying a number of buried structure in this region. Experts give the possibility that the remains must have belonged to the Sasanian dynastic era (224-651 CE).

 

The 328-hectare Halqeh historical site has an irregular octagonal pattern. This historical city was surrounded by two 7.4-meter-high interior and exterior claddings, with a defensive-trench of 53 to 60 meters in width in between.  

 

According to Babak Aminpour, expert of archeo-geophysics studies, magnetometer method was implemented during the geophysical works in Halqeh plain in an effort to find the buried architectural evidence in the region.

 

So far, experts have succeeded in completing their geophysical studies in 6 out of 328 hectares of this city.

 

Halqeh Dasht is considered one of the most important historical sites in Golestan province in which for the first time some archaeological excavations were carried out during 1970’s.
