A Blog that highlights Archaeological finds and news in South Africa. My aim is to have fun and improve my knowledge and hopefully other people's as well!
Also some fun pieces on Palaeontology, Anthropology and South African History. I will also blog my travel pictures and digs I have been on.

Way back Wednesday
Today i will be looking at my trip to The Chak Chak Zoroastrian Fire Temple!
"The village of Chak Chak, also known as Pir-e Sabz, consists of a shrine perched beneath a towering cliff face in the desert of central Iran. It is the most sacred of the Zoroastrian mountain shrines. Located near the city of Ardakan in Yazd province, Chak Chak serves as a pilgrimage point for pious Zoroastrians"
Now let me just tell you this was one hell of a climb!
Just a bit up the mountain
