Archaeological explorations aimed at stratigraphical analysis of various architectural layers and historical analysis of the Bam citadel are set to start soon, head of the citadel’s restoration project said.

The historic Bam citadel used to be the world’s largest mud brick structure. Mohammad Hassan Talebian noted the quake laid bare various architectural layers and pottery hidden in the wall cracks.

Iranian Cultural Heritage Organization (ICHO) experts believe some 80 percent of the 2000 year old citadel has been devastated.

“Archeological studies can shed light on architecture and structure of the Bam citadel and the lifestyle of people at the time as well as different incidents in the past,” Talebian remarked.

The bam citadel is believed to be built in the Arsacid era with residence there continuing until the Qajar period.
