According to ECI public relations quoting IRNA, while announcing this, Fatemeh Alizadeh said that the objects discovered are very diverse and include ancient mounds, sites, graveyards, qanats, shrines, petroglyphs, furnaces, caravanserais and fortresses.
She went on saying that in fact these findings seem to portray a long-term sequence of cultural eras dating from stone age and pre-historic times to the late Islamic period.
Concluding her remarks, Alizadeh reiterated: "Considering the fact that only a fraction of the area has been examined so far, so the number of archeological finds is expected to rise in the future".
