New archeological discovery in the Kurdistan Region

By Rudaw 3/4/2016
-
A team of archeologists has begun digging at a site in the Bestan Sur village. After intensive study, extensive mapping and painstaking digging, the team made a new discovery: agriculture here began more than  9000  years ago    .

"This  village  is  older than Charmo. We have discovered that people began to move from cattle farming to agriculture, so agriculture began here in the stone age and ice age," Professor Roger Matthews, an archeologist told Rudaw.

Since 1947  Bestan Sur has been classified as an archeological site.

In Sulaimani there are more than 600 archeological areas. Eight German, French and British teams are searching for new finds.

Bestan Sur is located in the southeast of Sulaimani. Might historians rewrite history just because of  new discoveries  in Bestan Sur.
