Archaeologists to Excavate Achaemenid Village

 

13 December 2007

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Iranian archaeologists have found the ruins of an Achaemenid village in the second phase of excavations at the Dowlatabad site near Persepolis.

The thin walls and partitions found at the site located near Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid) have prompted archaeologists to conclude a village covering an area of about 10 hectares once existed in the area.

Small pieces of stone dishes and ceramics discovered at the site support the theory that the village was governed on a labour economy basis.

Archaeologists believe that the number of skeletal remains discovered at the site dating back to the post- Achaemenid, Sasanian dynasty as well as post-Sasanian periods, suggest the area was probably used as burial grounds after the fall of Achaemenid dynasty.
