LONDON, (CAIS) -- Archaeologists have started the second phase of archaeological research in Nourabad Mamasani located in the country's southern Fars Province.

Alireza Asgari from Iran's Archaeology Research Centre and Daniel Potts from Australia's Sydney University are in charge of the project which started on December 31st, 2007.

Nourabad Mamasani, which is named after a Zoroastrian fire temple known as Nour since the fall of Sasanian dynasty in 637 CE, is famous for its numerous historic sites dating back to the pre-Islamic and post-Sasanian eras.

Famous historic sites such as Pasargadae and Persepolis are located in Fars Province which is the original home of the Persians and the homeland of the second Iranian dynasty, the Achaemenids (550-330 BCE).
