“A number of glazed and painted potteries were also found at Tal-e Sabz mound in Marvdasht that demonstrates the residing existence in the region from pre historical era,'' IRNA quoted the director of excavation team Farideh Shirani as saying.
Conducted by archaeological students of Marvdasht Islamic Azad University, this season’s project is to be continued for further achievements, Shirani noted.
Located 20 km North East of Marvdasht plain, Tal-e Sabz mound was inscribed on the country’s national heritage list in 2005.
Marvdasht, as an ancient Iranian spot, was the center of the vast Persian Empire. The Persepolis is in the vicinity of the city and few kilometers farther is Naqsh-e Rostam, Naqsh-e Rajab and the ruins of the ancient city of Estakhr, all reminiscent of the glorious history of the region.
