New Historical Discoveries Near Persian Gulf

New parts of a historical structure dating back to the Sassanid era (224–651 AD) have been recently discovered during excavations in Tonb-e Pargan, a hilltop site in the city of Bastak in Hormozgan Province.
According to Ali Asadi, head of the excavation team, the site and the monument is located 35 km north of Persian Gulf waters. 
The edifice was uncovered after three seasons of excavation in the site, the first of which began last year when traces of a ditch were detected around the mound, ISNA reported.
"Clay pieces, new parts of the already unearthed structure and stone tools similar to prehistoric items earlier found in Tall-e Bakoun in Fars Province, have been among the new discoveries in the third phase of discoveries that began nearly a month ago," Asadi said.
