21 July 2007

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- During a salvation project, Parse Pasargadae Research Centre is determined to restore an an Achaemenid palatial construction denoted to Darius the Great which was discovered by Franco-Iranian joint archaeology team in Bolaghi Valley.

 

Announcing this news, Hassan Rahsaz, head of restoration team further told Persian service of CHN that since the Achaemenid Palace [allegedly] will not submerge by inundation of the dam, it will go under restoration operations to be saved.

 

“Restoration of this palace will be conducted in an attempt to protect the remained architectural evidence of Achaemenid palace. The walls of the palace which have been unearthed up to 50 centimetres height are in state of emergency to be restored,” said Rahsaz.

 

A piece of wooden log which is believed to have belonged to the ceiling of the ediffice was among the architectural evidence unearthed beside the black stone pedestal and white and black plinths in the Palace. “Restoring and strengthening this wooden log is one of our main aims during the restoration activities,” added the head of restoration team.

 

Achaemenid Palace was discovered during the second season of archaeological excavations conducted by Franco-Iranian team under supervision of Mohammad Taghi Atayi from Iran’s Archaeology Research Centre and Rémy Boucharlat from the French Institute of Archaeology in area number 35 of Bolaghi Valley.
