French Archaeologists Partake in Garmroud Excavation


27 May 2007




LONDON, (CAIS) -- Second season of archaeological research at the historical site of Garmroud Belīrān, southern Āmol, is underway by a joint Irano-French archaeological team.

According to Persian service of IRNA, Mohsen Zeidi, the Iranian director of the team, said that the main objectives of the current round of excavations are to identify and review of the artifacts from the Palaeolithic age using earlier geological and anthropological findings.

He further said that studies began along a route extending from Mehriz Heights in Yazd to Davāmand and Āmol in 2004.

Identifying sediments from the New Palaeolithic period as a thin layer among the natural silts measuring 15 meters is one of the achievements of the first round of excavations in area conducted in 2006.

Zeidi further said that the cultural layer is situated ten meters below the surface, which probably date back to 30,000 to 35,000 years ago. Objects unearthed include stone objects and remnants of animals’ bones, he noted.

The same source noted that the project titled ’Plan for Ancient Geological and Anthropological Studies’ was concluded between Tehran University and French National Researches Institute and is underway in cooperation with Archaeology Research Centr
