Historic Map of North Khuzestan Under Compilation

 

03 July 2005

 

 

A historical map of north Khuzestan is currently being compiled, announced the director of Choghazanbil Protection and Renovation Project.


Mehdi Madahi told IRNA on Saturday that civilizations pertaining to each historical region will be identified once archeological studies are conducted.
He noted that the project to prepare the map has made 40 percent progress and studies on mounds located in west Karkheh, Dasht Shoushan and Choghazanbil are complete.


“Protection and restoration of Choghazanbil began in 2000 in collaboration with UNESCO and nine groups of archeologists,“ Madahi added.


He pointed out that teams specializing in restoration works, architecture, documentary, materials, geology, computer, executive and development are involved in drawing up the map.


The official declined to comment on the financial assistance rendered by UNESCO but pointed out that the funds were made available over a six-year period.


The Ziggurat of Choghazanbil is one of the most important historical monuments of the world.


Choghazanbil Ziggurat was located in Mesopotamia and dates back to 3,200 years ago.
