(CAIS) -- Iranian
and Korean archeologists have discovered a 100,000-year-old civilization in the
city of Roudbar located in the north of Iran.
Six Iranian archeologists in cooperation with nine Korean archeologists
undertook a discovery project in the northern province of Iran 10 days ago.
The archeologists could unearth a stone tool, which looked like a knife. The
experts estimated the stone knife to date back to at least 100 thousand years.
