Saltman Acquires Heritage Status

One of the saltmen discovered in the Chehrabad salt mines of Zanjan Province was inscribed on the National Heritage List following a meeting at the headquarters of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization on Saturday. 
A number of bodies were discovered in 2004 during the first phase of excavations at the site. Dating back 2,300 years, the bodies have been well-preserved due to the effects of salt and later referred to as saltmen. 
The inscribed saltman was the fourth and the most intact discovered body and is now kept at Zolfaqari Museum of Zanjan.
