LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeologists involved in the 3rd phase of the second season of excavations at Ecbatana historical hill have confirmed the site dates back to the Arsacid dynastic era, according to a report by Persian service of ISNA.


Head of the archaeological team, Dr Masoud Azarnoush said his team did not find any evidence regarding the Median dynastic (728-550 BCE) occupation in the area; and therefore, archaeologists should look into Hamadan to find the Median Ecbatana.“


Dr Azarnoush added, "although, the Arsacid dynasty lasted nearly five centuries, and constitutes a remarkable period of Iranian history, unfortunately not enough research has been carried out to compare to other Iranian dynasties, and therefore there are a great deal of questions about their culture and civilization are remained unanswered."
