studies on the oldest human and animal remains found near Iran's Kermanshah
Palaeolithic experts from Iran's National Museum, Paris Natural History Museum
and Washington University have studied the unique collection found in
Kermanshah's Vazmeh cave.
The collection of Ice Age remnants, which dates back to 11,000 to 70,000 years
ago, belonged to animals such as lion, rhinoceros and a type of extinct hyena.
