Bronze Age potteries unearthed in Iran
Archeological excavation in 12 sites and one cemetery in the northwestern province of Ardebil (South Azerbaijan, Iran) has rendered some potteries ranging from the Neo Bronze Age to the Parthian dynasty (247 BCE-226 CE).
“The decorations on these potteries are more or less similar in patterns, indicating a consistent cultural line from the Neo Bronze Age to the Parthian era,” said Hassan Akbari, an archeological doctorate student. He also noted most ancient burial places in the province are located near castles and other concentrated habitats.
