|Title:||The Mamasani District and the Archaeology of Southwestern Iran||Contributor(s):||Potts, D T (author); Roustaei, K (author); Weeks, Lloyd (author) ; Petrie, C A (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/16543||Abstract:||Southwestern Iran holds a pre-eminent position in Iran's archaeological heritage. The region that includes the lowland plains of Khuzestan and the adjacent Zagros highlands of Fars was the heartland of the Persian Empires ruled by the Sasanian and Achaemenid Dynasties (c.AD 205-638 and c.539-330 BC respectively). It was also the home of the various Elamite polities and states that engaged in warfare, political intrigue and trade with Babylonia and Assyria during the Bronze and Iron Ages (c.2200-641 BC) (see Figure 1.1). Archaeology in Iran can likewise trace its origins to the southwest, beginning in the late 19th century with the excavations at Susa that produced a series of spectacular archaeological discoveries and established a material 'footprint' for these historically-attested political entities that played a dramatic role in the history of the ancient Near East.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||The Mamasani Archaeological Project Stage One: A report on the first two seasons of the ICAR - University of Sydney expedition to the Mamasani District, Fars Province, Iran, p. 1-16||Publisher:||Archaeopress||Place of Publication:||Oxford, United Kingdom||ISBN:||9781407306209||Field of Research (FOR):||210103 Archaeology of Asia, Africa and the Americas||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an45323599||Series Name:||BAR Intenational series||Series Number :||2044||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 230
