The Public Relations Office of the Research Institute of Heritage and Tourism (RICHT) quoted Saman Heidari Gouran, head of the archaeology team in the area, as saying on Sunday that this is the first time that remains of a Neanderthal man have been discovered in Iran.

He noted that the newly found tooth is a milk tooth belonging to a six-year-old child, which was obtained together with stone tools belonging to the Middle Palaeolithic period.

Heidari Goran said the tooth, based on age-matched radiocarbon 14 experiments, has a range of 42,000 to 45,000 years.
