Archaeological Studies in Achaemenid Dahan-e Gholaman

 

News Category:

Achaemenian Dynasty

 16 December 2003

 

 

The fourth excavation season in the historical city of Dahaneh-e Gholaman (Slave Enrance), in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan, led to the completion of the diggings and reaching the floor of the buildings.

Dahaneh-e Gholaman is the only city remaining from the Achaemenid period, which includes residential areas, a temple, treasury, and an industrial and military quarter, and was inhabited in the fifth and sixth centuries B.C.

Head of the excavation team Dr. Mansour Sajjadi called the area important due to the fact that it can reveal a lot about the lifestyle, traditions, jobs and relations of Iranians under the Achaemenids.

The historical city first underwent excavations by an Italian group in 1960, and after the Islamic Revolution an Iranian group headed by Dr. Sajjadi restarted the work in the area in 2000.

The findings of the various Archaeological works in the city have proven that it has been evacuated quickly, presumably due to the sudden drying of the river and draught.
