A village dating back to 9800BC has been discovered in western Iran.

“The historical site dates back to 9800 BC and evidence suggest inhabitance in the site continued until 7400 BC,” said Hassan Fazeli, the director of Iran’s Archeology Research Center.

Archeologists believe such findings prove that Iran’s dwellers moved out of caves around 11,800 years ago and settled in plains.
