Archaeologists Excavate Persepolis Suburb

 

01 December 2007

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Iranian archaeologists are scheduled to start the second phase of excavations at the historical Dowlatabad site, near Persepolis.

The previously unearthed ceramics in the area prove that the site dates back to the Achaemenid dynastic era (550-330 BCE) and was part of the ancient capital of the Persian Empire.

Archeologists hope to unravel the mystery of the lifestyle of the people living on the outskirts of the most important Achaemenid structure through further excavations.

The significance of the site, which is located to the southwest of Marvdasht in Fars Province, lies in the fact that it was only used during the Achaemenid dynasty and not before or after this era.

Persepolis also known as Takht-e Jamshid is located about 70 kilometers northeast of the city of Shiraz.
