Resume Taleb-Khan Excavations
28 January 2008
(CAIS) -- Iranian
archaeologists have began the fourth phase of archaeological research in the
prehistoric site of Tappeh Taleb-Khan in Sistan va Baluchestan Province.
The discoveries made in the area show that the mound had been inhabited during
the second stage of civilization in the Burnt City (2300 BCE).
It appears that after the fire in Burnt City some of its citizens moved to
Tappeh Taleb -Khan.
Previous excavations at the Taleb-Khan mound had yielded many interesting finds
including the 3000- year-old remains of a child buried in a white shroud, who
apparently died of severe anaemia.
Tappeh-Taleb Khan is located near the city of Zabol in Iran's southeastern
province of Sistan va Baluchestan.
