 Iranian archeologist Hassan Fazeli has termed the third international gunmetal era conference one of Iran's most important archeological events.

“Holding the third international gunmetal era conference in Iran was one of the country's most important archeological events, as it was happening for the first time in Iran,” said Hassan Fazeli, the director of Iran's Archeology Research Center.

“Cultural exchanges and cultural complexity of ancient societies in the third and fourth millennium BCE were reviewed during the Conference,” he added. “The Conference has created a good opportunity to analyze archeological data and ancient civilizations representing Uzbekistan to Oman,” he explained.

According to Fazeli, a total of 100 articles were submitted by experienced researchers representing eight countries at the conference. Fazeli further pointed out that the conference was warmly welcomed by archeology experts representing Iran, Italy, Russia, the US, France, Tajikistan, Germany, Finland, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. The third international seminar themed Intercultural Ties in Middle Asia in the Gunmetal Era was held in Mahmoudabad in Mazandaran province June 16-19.

The first international gunmetal era conference was held in the US in 2006 and the second was held in Ravenna, Italy in 2007. The gunmetal Era began approximately 2,800 years BCE and continued until 1,300 years BCE.
