Kavosh stated that the discovery of the kilns indicates that the settlers of the hill had the capacity to produce ceramics beyond their own needs and perhaps exported them to other settlements.
He added that in addition to the kiln, they have uncovered five architectural spaces, unique human and animal statuettes, seals, woven mats and counting tools.
Sistan-Baluchsitan in southeastern Iran has been the site of several ancient archaeological discoveries.
