Recent surface survey for prehistoric archeological sites in western Iran has contributed toward defining three centers of early agricultural village settlement. Excavation at a site in upper Khuzistan revealed a sequence of settled life which, at its earliest, may antedate food production. The site also yielded faunal evidence for an ecological change subsequent to the end of the Pleistocene.
