Italian Expert Helps in Hegmateneh Stratigraphy

 

 

 10 August 2005

 

The historical site of Hegmataneh, in Hamadan province, will be undergoing a new season of archaeological studies by end of August.

The previous season of work led to the discovery of several strata dating to the Parthian dynasty to Islamic era. The new season, which will be carried out by cooperation of Iranian experts and an Italian archaeologist, also aims at stratigraphy studies of Hegmataneh Tepe.

As head of the excavation team, Masud Azarnush, explained to CHN, during the last 15 years extensive archaeological work has been carried out on the site, however, the information regarding eras during which Hegmataneh has been residential is not yet comprehensive.

Azarnush is hopeful that the cooperation of the Italian archaeologist, Bissione, who is an expert in stratigraphy and archaeology of the first half of the first millennium BC, would be of great benefit to the team’s achievements, specially since the upcoming work is to be focused on studying the strata remaining from Median empire, the first Iranian dynasty.
