Archaeologists Return to Sorkhdom Lori Ancient Site in Lorestan Province

 

13 August 2009

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Seventy years after first excavation at Sorkhdom Lori, an archaeological team has recently retuned to demarcate the ancient site near the Kuhdasht township in Lorestan Province.

 

Several test-trenches will also be dug at the site, which dates back to between the ninth to seventh centuries BCE, team director Kamyar Abdi told the Persian Service of CHN on Tuesday.

 

The site was first excavated by an archaeological team led by German and American archaeologist Erich Friedrich Schmidt in 1938.

 

They discovered ruins of a structure and a number of bronze artefacts, which led them to think that the structure was a temple.

 

Schmidt’s inclination to study on Persepolis hampered his team to continue excavation at the Sorkhdom Lori site.

 

Schmidt’s studies on the Sorkhdom Lori site were published by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago in 1989.

 

According to Assyrian inscriptions Sorkhdom Lori was of an ancient socio-political units in the Zagros region.
