Ancient adobe structure found in western Iran

Archeological explorations at the Avicenna Petrochemical Complex in Famenin, Hamedan Province, led to the discovery of an adobe structure.

The structure which dates back to Iron Age 3 (probably the Medians) has thick walls, fire platform and seating platforms of varying dimensions, IRNA reported.

The reclamation project was undertaken since the ancient Hajiabad Hill in the village of Razan is located within the precincts of Avicenna Petrochemical Complex of Famenin, reported the Research Institute of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization.

Head of the archeological team Esmail Hemmati Azandaryani, said on Monday that archeologists in the area identified valuable works which are unique in archeological studies in the west of Iran from Iron Age 3 (probably the Medians) and similar works have not been found anywhere else except in Noushijan.

He pointed to the temple platform, adobe platform, the dividing wall, the U-shaped stove, niche and the remains of the clusters of wheat close to the temple platform, noting that all the clay findings in the area date back to Iron Age 3.
