(CAIS) -- Stratigraphical studies in Roudan city,
located 35 kilometres from Strait of Hormoz in Persian Gulf, have resulted in
the discovery of architectural layers ranging from the third millennium BCE up
to the Parthian (248 BCE-224 CE) and Sasanian (224-651 CE) dynastic eras.
According to the Persian service of CHN, director of the archaeology team in
Temmaroun, Siamak Sarlak said that the studies, which were the first to be
conducted in the area for the past 15 years, reveal that the geological
specimens are at least 5,000 years old.
