A prehistoric burial ground was found near the Iranian city of Sanandaj, located in the country's western Kurdistan Province. The 3,000 year-old cemetery, which was found during a road construction project, is located 500 meters from the previously found ancient mound of Zagros. According to Kurdistan's provincial cultural heritage office, so far five squat burials have been found in the cemetery along with spears, bronze bracelets and earthenware.
