Public Relations Office of the Research Institute of Cultural Heritage and Tourism (RICHT) has quoted manager of the pre-historic Zohreh project Abbas Moqaddam as saying that the second season was followed from the long-term pre-historic Zohreh project with explorations in the Chegah Sofla Hill.
The exploration operations aimed to identify the architectural structures dating back to the pre-historic eras in the eastern side of Chegah Sofla Hill area, he said.
He added that the existing evidence together with a remarkable volume of charred wheat indicate that the mentioned space has likely been the place for the storage of agricultural products.
On the basis of the pottery pieces collected in the workshop, this building can be relatively attributed to the era which has been identified as the Shushan D or the New Shushan 1 in the chronological table of Khuzestan, he noted.
He went on to say that with regard to the explorations conducted so far in the past two seasons, now it is clear that in addition to the unique cemetery, the eastern side of Chegah Sofla Hill is fully rich in terms of architectural structures.
