Susa City Council Calls for Establishment of International College of Archaeology

 

20 February 2006

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- The City Council of Susa has recently called for the establishment of an international college of archaeology in the city, the Persian service of CHN reported on Monday.

 

Experts believe that the establishment of the college could lead to cultural changes in the region.

 

Susa City Councillor Mansureh Forughi-Rad said on Monday, “Considering the historical and architectural potential of the city, the establishment of such a college is necessary and would be beneficial to the historical monuments of the country.”

 

Jondishapur University of Ahwaz is currently pursuing the matter and attempting to gain the approval of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, she added.

 

Susa was the capital of the Elamite Empire. After integration of Elamites with Iranians, particularly Persians, the city became Persianized and incorporated into the Cyrus the Great Empire in the 6th century BC; -Darius the Great made Susa the administrative capital of Achaemenid Empire and built a great palace there.
