Oxford University Determines the Age of Kelar Tappeh

 

25 February 2008

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Oxford University Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit (ORAU) has determined the exact date of Iran's northern archaeological site of Kelar Tappeh to 4000 BCE by studying ancient coal and bone samples recovered from the site.

Archaeological excavations had yielded numerous caves, havens and settlements, which showed the historical evolution of human life in the area.

There are still five more meters to reach the site's oldest stratums, and future stratigraphical projects will possibly date the mound back to an older time.

Located in Iran's northern Mazandaran province near the city of Chalous, the Kelar Tappeh is one of the Iran's most important archaeological mounds, with the potential to reveal many archaeological facts about the southern coast of the Caspian Sea.
