Burnt City International Conference in Zabol University


News Category: Cultural

 22 November 2005



The archaeological international conference of the Burnt City will be held in Zabol University in Sistan-va-Baluchistan province by the attendance of Iranologists and other interdisciplinary sciences experts from Iran and European countries.

Burnt City is one of the most important historical sites of Iran. Eight seasons of archaeological excavations in the site indicate that Burnt City was an important center of civilization and trade in its own time. Burnt City is being regarded as a crucial historical site of the eastern Iran plateau.

“Some of the most well-known interdisciplinary sciences figures, who are carrying out archaeological excavations alongside the Iranian team, will deliver lectures in the conference,” said Mansour Sajadi, head of the archaeological excavation team of the Burnt City.

University professors and archeologists from France and Britain will also give lectures on the Burnt City during the conference.

“Since vast anthropological studies have been carried out on the Burnt City so far, most of the researchers will deliver their lectures in this respect,” said Sajadi.

Eight seasons of excavations in the historical site of Burnt City led to studies on more than 500 historical graves, which had never before been carried out in any of the historical sites of Iran.

An Italian team was also supposed to be part of the archaeological team of the Burnt City, but due to some delays in issuing the visa they did not come to Iran. Some issues such as archeobotany and paleopathology were duo to be discussed by the Italian team in the conference.

The one-day conference will be held on 23rd of November 2005 in Zabol University of Sistan-va Balushistan province.

Burnt City is one of the key historical sites of Iran, located in the southeastern province of Sistan va Baluchestan, which has so far hosted eight archaeological seasons after the Islamic Revolution of 1979, revealing the area to have had functioned as an important trade center some 5000 years ago.
