The Salt Men of Iran - By 2010, the remains of six men were discovered in the Chehrabad salt mines, located in Hamzehlu Village. Most of the men had been accidentally killed while working in the mines. The first man was discovered in 1993 and was accompanied by some artefacts which included three iron knives, a silver needle, some pottery and some other things. Over the forthcoming years, five more bodies were found, all in outstanding preservation. The oldest is estimated to date back to 9550 B.C.
