LONDON, (CAIS) -- Director of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Office in Mamasani, Fars province, has said on Monday that artifacts discovered in the region date back to 550 BCE.


Habib Fahliyani told Persian service of IRNA that archaeologists from Iran and Australia came across five columns of a monument in Sarvān Village last week, similar to those in Persepolis.


The column-bases were discovered during excavations in an area covering 1,200 square meters undertaken jointly by Iranian and Australian teams in 2002.


The first phase of the project is complete while the second phase will begin once the Interior Ministry issues the permit for the excavations, he noted.


Fahliyani further said that head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization’s Research Centre had announced that Sarvan Plain is 500 times more important than Sivand dam and Bolaghi Valley and the area deserves investment.
Mamasani is 180 kilometres away from Shiraz.
