TEHRAN – The Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization on Sunday broke ground on an archeology and anthropology museum in the city of Masal, northern Gilan province.

“A sum of three billion rials (some $71,000) has been allocated for construction of the museum, which will be a two-story building in an area of 300 square meters,” CHTN quoted Reza Alizadeh, the provincial tourism chief, as saying.

Ancient Gilan was within the sphere of influence of the successive Achaemenian, Seleucid, Parthian, and Sassanian empires that ruled Iran until the 7th century CE.
