Iron Age Sites Found in Gilan


14 February 2008



LONDON, (CAIS) -- Noted South Korean archaeologist has announced the discovery of Iron Age sites in the caves of the heights of Samdor Valley, in Gilan province.

According to Persian service of IRNA, a team of South Korean archaeologists led by Ki Dong Bai focused its research works on the province to prove the theory about human migration from Africa to Central Asia through the southern coast of the Caspian Sea.

Expressing pleasure over the new findings at the site, Bai further stated, “We have excavated more than 30 sites since July 15 and the most important discovery is the cave in Yarshaldeman.“

A sharp tool and several animal remains were found in the cave, he said, adding this is considered a completely new discovery in the province. He said this signifies that more illuminating findings from the Palaeolithic Era will be achieved.

The objective of the project is to develop a proper understanding about the region as a significant document for understanding the wave of human settlements in Central Asia and North Asia.

He hoped that a great model for human migration and cultural move in Eurasia can be developed by continuing excavations in the area.
