Hotú and Kamarband

Hotú and Kamarband Caves

One of the prehistoric human settlements was found in two caves called Kamarband and Hotú, 8 kilometers from Behshahr. The two caves are only a few tens of meters apart.

A group of archaeologists from the University of Pennsylvania, under the supervision of Carlton and Stanley, came to Mazandaran in the 1950s to study and investigate the cave in detail. Their goal was to discover objects inherited from the Stone Age, especially the Paleolithic, when people made necessary stone tools. But what they found in these caves was a truly incredible discovery: three skeletons; a man and two women! In addition to stone tools and skeletons, they also found many pieces of clay. In excavations at Kamarband, dating back to the Neolithic, 174 pieces of clay were discovered. The Neolithic is an important period in the history of human civilization, during which man began to practice agriculture and domesticate animals.
