A total of fifteen archaeological sites, which embrace a wide variety of prehistoric petroglyphs and rock-carved arts, have been identified in the plains of Meshginshahr county (Meshkin Shahr), northwest of the country.

“The newly-discovered historical sites contain over 100,000 petroglyphs, which are rare in their kinds in northwestern Iran,” Mr. Imani as Meshginshahr’s tourism chief said on Monday.

“The discovered objects bear depictions of human beings in archery, cavalry in rhythmic and magical themes… Some of those date back to 40,000 years ago,” the official noted.

In November 2018, Imani announced that new traces of prehistoric relics and petroglyphs were detected through an archeological survey in Meshgin-shahr county.

Some petroglyphs depict mountain goats, boat anchors, shooting and scenes of war, and scenes of deer hunting in individual and collective forms, the official stated.

The rock art can be seen in some mountainous regions across the country, offering good clues to help shed light on daily life in the distant past, though some of which bear figurative figures.
