Neolithic Hajji Firuz Tepe

Hajji Firuz Tepe is a Neolithic village in Iran's northern Zagros Mountains. A major step forward in our understanding of Neolithic winemaking came from the analysis of a yellowish residue inside a jar excavated by Mary Voigt at the site of Hajji Firuz Tepe. The jar was found together with five similar jars embedded in the earthen floor along one wall of a kitchen of a Neolithic mudbrick building dated to circa 5400-5000 B.C.
