Α)Researchers discover 7,000-year old cemetery in Khuzestan, Iran
According to a recent press release (to IRNA) from Khuzestan Cultural Heritage Lovers Society, researchers have come across what seems to be a 7,000-year-old cemetery in Behbahan County, in Iran’s Khuzestan Province. The exact location of the site lies at Tel Chegah-e Sofla, with the primary discovery being made by Abbas Moghaddam, a senior archaeologist. Interestingly, the experts after some preliminary analysis, have identified two patterns of graves, with some pertaining to collective burials and a few also relating to individual burials. Furthermore, they are hoping that a more detailed assessment can shed some light into the funerary practices and even lifestyle of people who inhabited this region in the prehistoric times.
