(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.
