Along with the Anu ziggurat of Uruk, the mud brick Sialk Ziggurat of Iran is considered the oldest in the world dating to c. 3,000BC with occupation of the site going back to at least c. 5500-6,000BC.

Proposed reconstructions:

Another.

Dating to the earliest periods, several skull types are found including several what I call "Cro-Magnoid" (hyperdilochocephalic) skulls as well as the less extreme more rounded "Ubaid-type" spoken of before.

Regarding the remains found at Sialk:
Quote

In Sailak I-V a number of human crania were found in graves and it was possible for H.V. Vallios to examine some eighteen of them and to make determinations of their respective head forms. There were four groups, comprising hyperdolicho-, dilocho-, meso- and brachycephaly (beginning in Sialk II). Perhaps the most interesting result was that in the periods preceding 'Ubaid (Sailk I-II) five out of eleven skulls were hyperdolichocephalic, whereas only one out of four displayed this extreme long-headedness in the earlier 'Ubaid period, Sialk, and thereafter there was no more of this type.

The Development of Cities.

LARGE

While elongated skulls of various types as we know have been found all over the world well into AD times, much more than people realize, the fact of the matter is that apparently beginning in the 9th millennium, most notably from the 6th millennium onward, the greater Mesopotamia region in particular (including the Levant and Anatolia) was a very strange place filled with large numbers of rather unusual looking people. These are not an accumulation of unique instances, but rather the norm found ubiquitously across thousands of years of Mesopotamian culture, eventually bleeding into Egypt during the later predynastic period, which all told represents nothing short of a phenomenon.
