Jamshid-Abad Tappeh (tappé is located en route from Qazvin to Rasht, 48 kilometres from Rasht in Rūdbār. Archaeological evidence points to a history that goes back to the first millennium BCE at this ancient mound; and some archaeologists believe it was a cemetery during the Iron Age.


The new discovery was made after archaeologists opened ten test trenches in various points on the hill. Bronze daggers, ornamentations, and a number of potteries dated to the first millennium BCE were among some of the discovered artifacts at Jamshid-Abad Tappeh.


According to team director Yousef Falahian, excavations began in this Iron Age hill last month with the aim of studying its historic remains and marking its historic boundaries.
