Niakan: Tange Kafari, important Neolithic settlements

Tehran, Jan 14, IRNA - Tange Kafari, in Ilam Province can be considered one of the most important habitat settlements of the Neolithic era up to now.

The Public Relations Office of the Research Institute of Cultural Heritage and Tourism (RICHT), quoted Lily Niakan, the Project Manager of the salvage explorations in Seimareh Dam as saying that the third archeological exploration season in Tange Kafari includes parts of the basin of Seimareh Dam in Ilam Province.

The cultural site could be considered as one of the most important areas of the fourth millennium BC up to the Sassanid period in that geographical location, she added.

Referring to the fact that the salvage explorations in that cultural site have been conducted with the cooperation of Iran Water and Power Resources Development Company (IWPC), she said implementation of the project has led to further understanding of the settlement specifications from the fourth millennium BC up to the Sassanid era in that geographical location.

The salvage explorations were focused on the architectural remains revealed in the pits created by the cultural profiteers and the ditches made by the lowering of water, Niakan noted.

Due to the richness of the works and the importance of cultural phases of the settlement structures of the fourth and third millennium BC, three workshops were also set up in the current season, she said.

The archaeologist announced that archeological studies and other works obtained in the current season also showed that the above-mentioned process can lead to understanding of different historical phases of that period and the expansion of that architectural structure as a coherent settlement in that geographical location.
