“The materials have been published in English, French, Russian, German, and Persian,”Mansur Sajjadi added.

 

Located 57 kilometers from the city of Zabol in Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan Province, the Burnt City was one of the world’s largest cities at the dawn of the urban era.

 

“There are plans to hold an exhibition of objects unearthed during the previous stages of excavations at a site-specific museum next year,” he stated, adding that the museum is to be established in the central part of the city’s cemetery and will feature skeletons and artifacts in their original locations.

 

Experts discovered 109 graves and unearthed 142 skeletons through the ninth phase of the archaeological excavations.

 

The Burnt City, which covers an area of 150 hectares, was built circa 3200 BC and destroyed some time around 2100 BC. The city had four stages of civilization and was burnt down three times. Since it was not rebuilt after the last time it was burnt down, it was named the Burnt City.
