Published on February 2nd, 2011 | by Admin


Over 500 ancient artifacts, dating back nearly 1,800 years, have been found at Bazir Tappeh in northeastern Iran.

Ruins of a large Parthian castle built of 37×37 centimetre mud bricks, which are similar to ruins previously discovered at the Turang Tappeh and the Narges Tappeh, have also been unearthed in the upper stratum of the site,” Fa’ali said.

In addition, the archaeological team currently working at site has discovered a number of grey and red earthenware items that dates back to ca. 300 bce based on carbon-14 dating.

In the lower stratum, they have also found a number of legged earthenware dishes of the Achaemenid dynastic era. The artefacts are similar to the pottery first unearthed at an archaeological site near the town of Aq-Qaleh in northern Golestan Province.
