of a Sasanian Circular Structure Behind Salman-e Farsi Dam
(CAIS) -- Iranian archaeologists have unearthed a post-Sasanian (651-861
CE) architectural remains in the second phase of excavations at the Salman-e
The mud brick ruins were found on top of a Sasanian circular structure, which apparently was destroyed in an earthquake. Covering an area, six meters in
diameter, the circular-shaped building has a very solid foundation.
Archaeologists speculate the 360-hectare Sasanian city situated behind the
Salman-e Farsi dam in Fars province, will be submerged once the dam is filled.
The post-Sasanian ruins are located in the northeastern part of the city, which
were discovered in the first phase of archaeological research behind the dam.
