Historical City to Undergo Geophysical Studies

 

News Category: Achaemenian Dynasty

Province of: Fârs

16 November 2003 

 

 

Iranian experts are planning to carry out geophysical studies on part of the parse historical city this year.

Head of the Parse & Pasargadae Research Center Mohammad Hassan Talebian said some 30 hectares of the city would be subject to geophysical study methods aimed at finding out about its architectural structures, doing away with Archaeological excavations.

The methods ensure an Archaeological map can be plotted without excavations. Talebian said the geophysical studies could help Archaeologists in future regarding further studies, environmental studies and reclamation of land.

Geophysical studies have been going on since last year on some 10 hectares of the area, rendering clues as to part of the architectural structures as well as the city fences.

So far, some 3000 hectares of the parse historical city have been identified. There are major historical sites within the city, including Persepolis, Naqsh-e Rustam and a number of historical hills.
