Jundi Shapour Excavation Operation Gets Momentum

 

05 July 2004

 

 

The arrival of one American archaeologist and one of his prominent Iranian counterparts has given momentum to a drive to excavate the historical site of Jundi Shapour in Khuzestan Province, southwest of Iran.


The historical site, one of the monuments left from the Sasanid Dynasty, is left in disrepair, even farmers and some local authorities have unwisely decided to ruin the property.


“Last month Dr. Masoud Azarnoush, head of the National Archaeology Institute, and a representative of the US Archaeological Association visited the site and finished the assessment study in 3 days,” said Mina Alizadeh, director of the Cultural Heritage Organization in Khuzestan Province. “The study has provided several solutions to salvage the site from dilapidation.


Jundi Shapour was a sprawling Sasanid city and holds the first world university and hospital, later buried under sand dunes. Later archaeologists managed to recover its university from the sand.
