New Parts of Iran’s Largest Brick Fortress Unearthed

 

25 May 2004

 

 

 

Parts of the workshops and military facilities of the Roudkhan Fortress, the largest brick fortress of the country, have been discovered during the fourth excavation season in the area.

Roudkhan Fortress, located 650 meters above the ground level in the northern province of Gilan, covers an area of 2.6 hectares with its 42 tower and ramparts made of brick and stone.

Parts of the workshops and military facilities of the fortress were uncovered in its eastern and northern wings, explained head of the excavation team, Shahram Ramin, who described the discovery as of great importance.

Two watchtowers were also found in the northwestern and southeastern parts of the fortress, overseeing the surrounding areas.

The researchers of the project intend to survey and document the Roudkhan military fortress for further studies and restoration activities.
