Three km from the city of Damghan, this Tappeh was excavated by an American Archaeological Mission from 1929 until \93\, The excavations resulted in the discovery of the remains of mud-brick dwellings and other structures, numerous grottoes; objects made of bone, silver, and other metals; plain and glazed pottery; agricultural tools; and statues and figurines of men, animals, and birds, which have been unearthed in an ancient cemetery and which, according to the archaeologists, belong to the third and second millennia BC, when the region had been inhabited.
