Tappeh Sang-e Chakhmaq and the Alborz Mountains. Geologic setting of Tappeh Sang-e Chakhmaq Ken-ichiro Hisada (University of Tsukuba)  Tappeh Sang-e Chakhmaq is located on the terrace deposits that developed on the southeastern side of the Alborz Mountains, north Iran (Fig.1). It is well known that the life of ancient people was greatly influenced by various natural conditions, such as climate, topography, and geology. In particular, geology is not only important as a source of raw material for stone tools and residence construction material, but also as a provider of groundwater and mineral resources. Furthermore, soil is generated from weathered bedrocks, and soil is a key influence on vegetation. Thus, when ancient people considered the natural conditions for first settlement locations, geology would have been a crucial factor in these conditions. This paper offers a preliminary examination of the geology around Tappeh Sang-e Chakhmaq. Tappeh Sang-e Chakhmaq is situated close to the southern edge of the “Bastam basin”. This basin is surrounded by higher mountains to the north and west (Fig. 2), whereas there are no conspicuous ridges on its eastern and southern sides. The low relief continues to the Great Kavir Basin in the Central Iran zone, making a topographic division of Iran. All the rivers in the
