Iran to Establish Iron-Age Museum in Qazvin

A museum is planned to be set up in Qazvin Province to display objects dating from the Iron Age period, the head of the provincial office of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization said.
"An on-site museum to exhibit discovered items belonging to the Iron Age will be opened in the prehistoric sites of Qarah Tappeh and Tappeh Zagheh in Sagzabad village about 50 km from the provincial capital Qazvin in the current Iranian year [ending March 20, 2019]," Mohammad Ali Hazrati told IRNA on Sunday.
He said four billion rials ($95,000) have been allocated to the project.
"A cemetery dating back to Iron Age III, ancient weapons, pottery and mud-brick buildings are some of the archeological finds so far in the area," Hazrati said.
Archeological excavations at Qarah Tappeh and Tappeh Zagheh mounds have been ongoing since the 1960s.
