TEHRAN -- A joint team of German and Iranian archaeologists along with a number of Polish experts in interdisciplinary fields are currently studying 13,000 years of habitation at the archaeological site of Gohar-Tappeh near the city of Behshahr in Iran’s northern province of Mazandaran.
The research project, named “Cave to City”, aims to scrutinize human habitation from the Paleolithic era to urbanization in Mazandaran, the Persian service of CHN reported on Wednesday.
The team plans to determine how humans left the caves to establish early urban areas in the region.
