LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeological studies at Korbaldasht historical site, Marvdasht, Fars province, have produced considerable results in the restoration of agricultural systems and mechanisms of state support for the sector in different historical eras.


According to ISNA Persian Service, director of the archaeological team for Korbāldasht, Ali Asadi said that studies of the site, which was undertaken with the aim of identifying the economy of the region using archaeological evidence from the dams and sites, are complete.


According to him, during archaeological studies five main embankments over Kor River were identified, the oldest of which is Amir Embankment which dates back to the Achaemenid dynastic era (550-330 BCE).


The other embankments are from the Sassanid era (224-651 CE) as well as other pre-Islamic periods.


The findings further reveal that evidence pertaining to the main route from Marvdasht to Shiraz, a vestige of the Achaemenid era, have also been found, he said.


Studies in Korbal were conducted in cooperation with Parse-Pasargadae Foundation and Chicago University.
