‘Unique’ Relics Unearthed in Northern Iran: Archaeologist

Aunique” haul of ancient relics and vestiges of urban structures have been unearthed in Astarabad (or Esterabad) in northern Iran, senior Iranian archaeologist Habib Rezai has said.
“As a result of the excavations carried out in this [archaeological] season, historical artifacts and evidence from the Qajar, Safavid, Timurid, Ilkhanid, and Seljuk eras were discovered. These include architectural remains, pieces of pottery and glassware, as well as metal objects and vessels,” Rezai told CHTN in an interview on Thursday.
A collection of Seljuk-era metal objects (made of copper and bronze), which date back to nearly one thousand years ago, is the most important cultural finding at this excavation, the archaeologist said.
“The metal objects include candlesticks, firecrackers, burners, chandeliers, large and small vessels and utensils, some of which baring decorations and inscriptions.”
“The discovery of such metal collections from the Seljuk era is unprecedented and unique in Iran,” Rezai, who led the archaeological excavation at the site, said.
Astarabad is the older Islamic name for the modern town of Gorgan in Golestan province. It lies at the southeastern corner of the Caspian Sea, and is essentially a lowland and piedmont area, rather drier in climate and habitat than the semi-tropical regions of Mazandaran and Gilan further west; it forms a transition area, both from the climatic and the vegetational aspects. “Architectural evidence and a collection of available sources and [historical] travelogues show that [the modern] Gorgan lies on the historical city of Astarabad, and certainly in the lower layers of this historical city, valuable cultural artifacts can be retrieved,” the archaeologist explained. Talking about future excavations at the site, the expert noted: “To complete the archaeological knowledge of this treasured site, the excavations should be continuing at this site to reach the virgin soil.”
“Future excavations and additional studies can give answers to many of our questions about the spatial function of the site of the discovery of this unique metal treasure… and also the study lower cultural layers and deposits related to the Seljuk period will help to do so.”
