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
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.
