Discovery of armless and legless skeletons in Tool Talesh cemetery (350 hectares), which is located in Gilan province, confirms a bloody battle in this region some 3000 years ago. It seems that the corpses were buried after their arms and legs were cut off. Mohammad Reza Khalatbari, director of the pre-historic department of the Archaeology Research Center, and head of Tool Talesh excavation team believes that "The limited number of pottery put inside the graves indicates that they should have not belonged to high classes of the society."!
