New Archaeological Museum Opens in Iran

 

18 December 2004


Iran’s Archaeological Institute finally got its own museum, capping 40 years of upheaval struggle to develop archaeology in an artifact-rich country.


“Forty years of archaeological endeavours in different corners of Iran culminated in setting up this museum to mark the 70th anniversary of opening Tehran University,” said Fazeli, head of the institute.


The artifacts showcased in the museum were neglected for 40 years and kept in such an inappropriate way that some metal relics are rutted, added Ahmad Aliyari, deputy chairman of Iran’s Archaeological Institute.


The museum has three exhibition halls to feature artifacts dating from Neo-lithe and Iron-Copper, Iron and Bronze Age and the Islamic Period.
