Paleolithic residence found in north Iran
Tehran, In the field research done in Hezar-Jareeb, eastern Mazandaran, northern Iran, a Paleolithic residence was discovered.
'A joint research consisting of researchers of the Research Institute of Heritage and Tourism (RICHT) and the Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies studied the area intensively,' said the head of the group Elham Qasidian.
'The discovery confirms the 1960s theory saying that this area was a west-east corridor,' she said.
Also a few days ago, a milk tooth belonging to a six-year-old Neanderthal child was discovered in the rocky mountain of Baveh Yawan in Kermanshah Province, western Iran.
This is the first time that remains of a Neanderthal man are being discovered in Iran.
The 42- to 45-thousand-year-old tooth was discovered alongside some stone tools belonging to the middle Paleolithic period which have been found in scientific explorations.
According to him, previously a few similar teeth have been discovered in Spain, France and Germany.
