  • Descrição: The third millennium BCE is known for the rise of complex cultures that produced the pyramids of Egypt, the ziggurats of Mesopotamia, and the large cities of the Indus River valley. At a meeting last month, archaeologists presented evidence from an obscure valley in southeastern Iran indicating that there was another sophisticated civilization at this time. The finds--including a massive stepped structure, signs of contact with distant societies, and possible examples of writing--are sparking both excitement and controversy among archaeologists.
