dynasty architectural remains were found in Moosh
Tappeh, near Hamedan, west of Iran, during the
fourth excavation season.
The found monument is similar to brick structure
of Noushi Jan in Malayer. Archeologists believe
the two structures, which are filled with sricks
using the same technique, belong to a same era.
The Noiushi Jan, a Median temple, was found in the
60’s by a British archeological team under the
directorship of Girshman. Later on, in Uzbaki hill
near Tehran, a mortuary was found that was
similarly filled like the Noushi Jan structure.
“During the excavation, two chambers were
emptied of bricks for continuing the studies”
asserted Yaqub Mohammadifar, a member of
excavation team and the dean of architecture
faculty at Bu’Ali University in Hamedan.
Having finished the studies, the archaeological
team has filled out the chambers again and covered
the top for protection. In the Northwest of the
monuments, a wall was found that belongs to Iron
Age and is not contemporary to the found monument.
Mohammadifar indicated that in the excavation, a
method based on analogy was used and regarding the
collapse of a part of the site 15 years ago, the
site can not be fully identified.
