FridayMosqueIsfahan.jpg (60214 bytes)Archeologists have already classified over 500,000 historical artifacts and potteries unearthed from Isfahan’s grand mosque, an Italian archeologist Bruno Genito said.


Half of the one million items discovered in the age-old mosque have been so far categorized and studies on the remainder will be completed by 2006, added Genito, who is part of the project.


His fellow countryman Professor Umberto Sherato phased in archeological explorations and excavations at the landmark site from 1972 to 1977, unearthing about one million artifacts.


After 25 years, Iranian and Italian archeologists launched the Archeological Data Archive for Grand Mosque of Isfahan in 2000 for classifying the items.


The head of the Iranian archeological team, Fariba Saeedi confirmed that Iranian and Italian experts from Faentza Institute are conducting studies on the findings from the mosque site.
