LONDON, (CAIS) -- A sections of the Achaemenid city of Dahan-e Gholaman (dahān-e golāmān – Slaves’ Entrance) will go under water, as the result of the construction of a new dam in the South-eastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.

 

“The ancient site of Dahan-e Gholaman is one of the most important archaeological sites belonging to the Achaemenid dynasty (580-330 BCE) in Iran. The archaeological parameter of the city is not clear, and the construction of this new dam and its’ inundation of the area, will drawn well over 30% of the ancient city, which will be lost forever”, said Hanssanali Shahraki, head of ICHTO provincial department.

 

Shahraki, added: “the dam authorities are reluctant to provide us with the construction-permit, and the lack of knowing exact parameters of the city will cause irreversible damages. At the moment we are conducting a survey to make out the ancient boundaries of the city for protection.”
