Archeologists from Germany, Britain, and France took part in the event, called ‘Tepe Sialk, the heart of Iran’s Archaeology,’ IRNA reported.
An Iranian delegation, headed by Jebrael Nokandeh, head of Iran’s National Museum, as well as Iran’s Ambassador to France Bahram Qassemi also attended the conference.
Tepe Sialk is a large ancient archeological site in a suburb of the city of Kashan, Isfahan Province, in central Iran.
Tepe Sialk was excavated for three seasons (1933, 1934, and 1937) by a team headed by Roman Ghirshman and his wife Tania Ghirshman.
The excavation was resumed for several seasons between 1999 and 2004 by a team from the University of Pennsylvania and Iran’s Cultural Heritage Organization led by Sadeq Malek Shahmirzadi called the Sialk Reconsideration Project.
