Neolithic settlement unearthed in Iran
An archaeological team working on the Kelar Tepe believes that they have found a Neolithic settlement on the prehistoric mound located in the Kelaradsht region in Iran's northern province of Mazandaran. However they have said that more tests are needed to determine an accurate date for the site.
"Excavations at the Rashak 3 Cave have uncovered an oven at a depth
of 5 meters," team director Hamed Vahdatinasab said."We have also
discovered shards in the oven, which are very similar to Neolithic
pottery works," he added. Vahdatinasab said that Ezzatollah Negahban,
the father of modern Iranian archaeology, had excavated the region
about 40 years ago.
