Archaeologists Seeking Remnants of Iron Age Temple

 

17 February 2007

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- A new season of archaeological excavations got underway in the historic Qoli-Darvish hill near the city of Qom after a 15-day delay, Persian service of ISNA reported.


Head of the archaeology team, Siamak Sarlak, explained that the new studies are aimed at discovering other architectural remains pertaining to an ancient prayer house as well as completing stratigraphic studies.


“Last year, about one third of a prayer house stretching back to the Iron Age was unveiled in the region. Part of the monument had been ruined during the post-revolution years. We speculate that the remains of the structure should still be there and are therefore rummaging around the place for its traces.“


Excavations at Qoli-Darvish site, for the first time, unfolded the mysteries of Iron Age architecture. It also led to the unearthing of the first chimney of iron melting workshop indicating an age-old civilization which can be traced back to the Iron Age
