Marlik Hill was an unknown civilization up to 1340s. Gohar Rud Hill was probed in that year by an Iranian archeologist team supervised by Dr. Ezzatallah Negahban. There are many ancient hills on this plain and Marlik Hill, Zeinab Bijar Hill, Dur Bijar Hill, Pilaghal’eh Hill and Jazem Kul Hill are five of the most important ones.
