Iranian, foreign archaeologists return to 8000-year-old site in southern Iran





An Iranian-Australian team’s joint efforts in late 2007 led to the discovery of the ruins of an Achaemenid palace at the site, which is believed to be the Achaemenid city of Lidoma that has been named in a collection of ancient tablets previously unearthed at Persepolis.

The prehistoric area of Tol-e Nurabad and the Achaemenid structure at the site will be studied by the team, Iranian director of the team Alireza Asgari told the Persian service of CHN on Sunday.

Tol-e Nurabad has a 6000 year archaeological sequence beginning in the Neolithic period (ca. 6000 BC) and extending to the post-Achaemenid period in the 1st millennium BC.
