Discovery of a Middle-Palaeolithic Settlement Near Qom

 

13 July 2009

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Iranian archaeologists have discovered evidences of middle-Palaeolithic settlement near the Daryāch-ye Namak (Salt Lake) in the country's central province of Qom.

The excavation was conducted by archaeologists from Esfahan University, which yielded a collection of Middle-Palaeolithic tools.

“The team found human residential areas dating back to 30,000 to 70,000 years ago,” said Mohammad-Ali Makkizadeh from Esfahan University speaking with Tabnak Persian Service.

“It seems that humans lived in the area when the lake was full of water,” he added.

According to Makkizadeh the team had travelled all through the Qom Province to collect samples and identify more sites to study.

Salt Lake is located approximately 100 km east of the religious city of Qom.
