3,500-Year-Old Archive Found

 

News Category: Elamite Period

 06 November 2005

 

 

 

Following the discovery of 80 clay tablets in cuneiform script at the archaeological site of Haft-Tapeh in the Shush region of Khuzestan province, archaeologists have come across an extensive archive of official documents in the 3,500-year-old Kabank city, reported CHN.


The archaeological excavations were conducted by a team of Iranian and German archaeologists with the aim of unearthing the ancient city of Kabank.


Head of the archaeological team in Haft-Tapeh said that the archive was found after two months of excavations in Kabank.


Geophysical appraisals indicated traces of a structure in the southern section of the city.


However, archeologists do not believe that their excavations will result in the unearthing of an elaborate administrative system in the city.


Furthermore, archaeologists also came across a sword and arrow-head in Haft-Tapeh. They believe that Haft-Tapeh was one of the most strategic cities of the Elamite era.
