The ninth season of archaeological excavations and studies in the historical site of Burnt City in Sistan va Baluchistan will commence with participation of figures from all around the world, some of whom will be seeing the site for the first time ever.

Burnt City is one of the key historical sites of Iran. Located in the south eastern province of Sistan va Baluchistan, the city has had booming times in trade and culture some 5000 years ago, considered an important civilization. The first excavations there were carried out by Italians, followed later on by Iranian experts some 27 years ago.

Experts arriving in Iran for Burnt City excavations come in three groups of archaeobotanists, paleopathologists, and paleopetrologists from France and Italy, head of Burnt City excavations, Mansour Sajjadi, told CHN.

The archaebotany team is headed like last year by Lorenzo Constantini, the paleopathology team by Prof.Gino Fornaciari, one of the greater scholars of the branch in the world, and the paleopetrology team by Ms. Casanova from Rennes University, France.

The presence of foreign experts in Burnt City will give the ninth season a new meaning and importance.
