Remains of ancient village found in south central Iran

According to the Research Institute of Iran Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, the head of the joint Iranian-German archaeological team in Tal-e Kamin , Norouz Rajabi said that the first season of studies in that area showed that cultural activities and residential settlements existed in the region from the beginning of the sixth millennium BCE up to the beginning of the first millennium CE and the Achaemenid period, IRNA reported.

However, no evidence has been found about the cultural establishment in that surroundings after the Achaemenid era up to the early Islamic centuries, he added.

Due to the vulnerability of the mound on the side of the farmlands and in order to prevent the gradual destruction and leveling of this mound, the program for determining the limits of the hill started in the form of 12 speculative operations around the mound which were completed satisfactorily, Rajabi said.

He referred to the pathology, documentation and preparation of 3D map of the hill as yet another research plan of the joint Iran-German archaeology team.

Rajabi hoped that the present conditions of the mound can be documented.

Tal-e Kamin is an important area on the banks of the Kor River which spans one hectare and was first identified by William Sumner and in the 1980s several explorations were conducted on it by Vandenberg.
