LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeologists excavating in the southern historical town of Moud in South Khorasan province have unearthed ancient earthenware dating back to the Parthian dynastic era (248 BCE-224 CE).


Excavations were conducted on an ancient mound located near the city of Birjand. Numerous historical artifacts dating back from the pre-historic eras up to the Safavid dynasty were found at the site.

 
South Khorasan province has numerous historical and archeological sites pertaining to the Neolithic and post-Sasanian era (651-850 CE).


Moud or ’Mood’ is a district of South Khorasan’s provincial capital Birjand. Ferezmorgh is a subdivision of the city.


The area is known for Moud blankets and carpets that normally have a curvilinear design with a sunflower shaped picture in the center. Such carpets are usually of high quality and made of wool or cotton.
