Iranian-Italian Joint Mission in Khuzistan (Ninth Campaign)

Ninth Campaign (October-November 2016)

The 2016 campaign foresees the exploration of some trenches already opened in 2015 on the site of Chal-e Chendar (Shami Valley). Fieldwork activity will mainly focus on two areas of the site: the terrace, were important religious building stood, and the burial area, where structures suggesting the existence of burial complexes linked to the sanctuary were found.
