LONDON, (CAIS) -- An Iranian-Italian archaeological team has started an emergency operation to restore one of the damaged bastions of Bam Citadel.

The Italian archaeologists will also prepare the final restoration plan of the bastion which will be submitted in a month and is to begin as soon as the plan is approved by Iranian officials.

 

Two thousand year old Bam Citadel (Arg-e-Bam) was constructed during the Parthian dynasty (248 BCE-224 CE) and it is considered to be one of the biggest mud brick complexes in the world, which was severely damaged in the devastating earthquake of December 23rd, 2003.

 

In 2004, 'Bam and its Cultural Landscape' was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage in Danger List.

The earthquake revealed the citadel's older layers of mud brick structures, which hold a lot of archaeological interest.
