Annau

Annau or Anau (both: ənouˈ) [key], town, in S Turkmenistan, 5 mi (8 km) SE of Ashgabat, near the Iranian border. At Annau, Raphael Pumpelly discovered (1903) traces of habitation dating back to c.3000 B.C. The excavations uncovered artifacts indicating cultivation of grain; beautifully designed pottery was also found.
