A cemetery containing over 500 graves, some of which date back 3,500 years, has been discovered in southwestern Iran.

The team has excavated over 20 graves so far in the cemetery located in the Taj Amir region near the city of Yasuj in south of Iran, he added.

Many artifacts such as pottery, stone, bronze, earrings, rings, daggers, bayonets and coins have been discovered along with the skeletons unearthed from the graves.
