Archaeologists in Search of Grains Warehouse of Burnt City

Iranian Archaeologists are set to start to look for agricultural remains from a village 15 km from the Burnt City in southeastern Iran.

Head of the explorations team Dr. Mansour Sajjadi said in this season of explorations, the first of its kind, the Archaeological team would seek a village, some pottery workshops and the living place of farmers and pottery artisans.

Dr. Sajjadi noted there have been many villages around the Burnt City. "Our findings suggest the city inhabitants used to be craftsmen and that's why in this historical site we look for traces of farming activities, including the cultivation of grain to sustain the people of the city at the time," he remarked.

He said the common sense was that the city inhabitants would trade industrial and hand made objects with agricultural products in the surrounding villages.

Located near Zabol, the burnt city is a historical one with an area of 150 hectares. It is considered one of the main historical sites in the country, which used to be inhabited 3200 to 1900 B.C. In its heyday, it had a population of 15,000.
