Tons of artifacts were also found, including iron knives, a silver needle a grindstone and some pottery etc. He has been dated to around 1700 years ago and has a B+ blood group. It has also been determined that he had rank or influence. Nobody knows what happened to him, but its thought that a hard blow was delivered to his head.

He is now in The National Museum of Iran in Tehran.

Hope you enjoyed my Way back Wednesday!
