Archeologists have found over 40 ancient mounds in Iran’s southeastern province of Kerman.
Archeologists from Germany’s Tubingen University and the Iranian Research Center for Cultural Heritage and Tourism discovered 42 ancient mounds near the city of Faryab.
“The mounds are scattered in an area of 8,000 kilometers and date back to the period of time between the pre-Neolithic and Islamic eras,” said head of the Iranian archeology team Nader Alidad-Soleimani.
The mounds were discovered during the first phase of archeological excavations in the area. The project was conducted over the past three months with the aim of studying the cultural exchange between Mesopotamia and the southeastern areas of ancient Persia during the Bronze Age.
