CHN & UNESCO to Start Second Phase of Studies in Choqazanbil




19 July 2003

Iran and the UN's educational, scientific and cultural organization UNESCO are set to kick off their second round of cooperation in the Choqazanbil ziggurat in southwestern Iran soon.

This comes three years after the start of the cooperation as outlined in the first round deal.

A joint architectural project, Choqazanbil was subject to wide ranging studies by domestic and foreign experts.

The Choqazanbil and Haft Tappeh national project coordinator said the Cultural Heritage Organization (CHO) has put forward a further three year plan for continued cooperation with UNESCO which has indicated its agreement in principle but is formally yet to announce it.

Mohammad Hassan Talebian noted the first phase saw studies carried out on Choqazanbil proper but the second phase is expected to include the entire Choqazanbil historical area which covers its historical periods, anthropology, geology, ecosystem and other environmental factors relevant to the area.

"The scale of the Choqazanbil historical area will be known once a comprehensive study of the area is complete and its historical layers are discovered," Talebian added.

Among features of the second phase of study is the combination of the two Haft Tappeh and Choqazanbil historical sites due to their vast similarities.

Choqazabil is inscribed on the UNESCO's world heritage list.
