Ancient warrior's grave discovered in northern Iran

The head of the coactive exploration team of the ancient zone of Rostam Abad County along Rasht-Gilan highway announced the discovery of a forty-year-old man's grave with war tools dating back to 3,000 years ago.

Iran (IMNA) – "During the coactive exploration of this area, several graves with some burial gifts have been discovered. According to the evidences, these graves belong to the Iron Age, about 3,000 years ago," Shahram Ramin said. 

Pointing out that the most intact grave includes a human skeleton along with war tools and food containers, he noted, "according to the investigations of Sara Soltani, the team's anthropologist expert, this skeleton belongs to a forty year old man at 5.2 to 5.47 foot tall. Considering the importance of this finding, the board intends to record the grave and its findings at the site of the discovery through laser scanning."

"In addition to the Iron Age graves, a number of stone tools have been discovered in the lower depths. The preliminary investigations of Iran's National Museum experts indicate that these items probably belong to the Epipalaeolithic period," he added. 

Saying the group gathering of these relics is of great importance, he continued, "concerning the location of these 1000- year old sites along the highway, they have the capacity to be changed into a museum."
