Call to Invite Foreign Scholars to Burnt City

 

News Category: Cultural

 04 December 2005

 

 

The only Iranian anthropologist working with an archeological team at Burnt City (Shahr-e Sukhtah) has said that the team does not want additional funds or facilities but it does need sufficient time to undertake careful research and foreign expertise on the project.


Farzad Forouzanfar told Cultural Heritage News agency that the most important issue facing anthropological studies is inviting foreign experts in the field.


The process of inviting foreign experts is very complicated, he said citing that it took one and a half years to get an anthropologist from the University of Newcastle in Britain to come and undertake studies in the Burnt City. The expert came and presented a report after conducting preliminary studies at the site, he added.


Forouzanfar noted that the ninth round of excavations in the Burnt City has just begun adding that about 400 skeletons were unearthed and studied in first eight rounds.


“These skeletons will be kept in special boxes after undergoing classification. The skeleton section of ’Burnt City’ is a complete and comprehensive anthropology databank,“ he added.


Commenting on a shortage of scholars in certain specialized fields, Forouzanfar noted that for example there are no tooth pathologists in Iran.


Turning to a risk of illegal excavations in Burnt City as in other archeological sites in Sistan-Baluchestan province, particularly the cemeteries, Forouzanfar responded that Burnt City has guards throughout the year and digging at the site requires special equipment.
