7000-year-old relics discovered at Narges Tappeh in Iran
Some traces of ancient architecture, pottery and a dozen other monuments and relics have been discovered by Iranian archaeologists at the ancient site of Narges Tappeh near an airport currently under construction in Gorgan, capital of Golestan province. Some of the relics date back to 5,000 BC.
The discovery was made during an archaeological test excavation to determine if construction of the airport would damage the ancient site. "Our study shows that construction of the airport will not greatly damage Narges Tappeh because the ancient site is located north of the airport's runaway," he said.
