Marlik Hill (Archaeological site) - Gilan
Most of the Marlik artifacts date from Iron Age I, between the fourteenth and twelfth centuries BC. The art of Marlik is often attributed to those who were, strictly speaking, the first Iranians, that is, to an Indo-European population. Before this period, the population of Iran can be considered Elamite.

Marlik Hill (Archaeological site) - Gilan
Marlik was officially excavated in the 60s - 53 stone-lined tombs were discovered, ranging widely in structure, size and type of stone used - the largest are entirely of imported stone. Many impressive grave-goods were unearthed, most notably some beautiful golden cups, decorated with animal motifs in high relief. Objects from the Ziwiye hoard (found near Lake Urmia in 1947) have also been associated with Marlik and Hasanlu: items are currently widely scattered among different collections, and some are thought to be forgeries - but they do suggest the "missing link" between the "Scythian" animal style of the Steppes, and later art from the plateau.

Marlik Hill (Archaeological site) - Gilan
The archaeology is generally assumed to have belonged to a people group who spoke an Iranian language and who migrated into Iran from Central Asia in early to mid-2nd millennium BCE. The abundance of arms, horse-trappings (as well as horse burials), and spouted vessels among the grave goods has been cited as distinct Iranian signatures (Kurochkin). The exact attribution of these people, however, remains largely a conjecture.
