The site of Tappeh Sialk in Iran was excavated by the archaeologist Roman Ghirshman between 1933 and 1937, exposing whole areas of the ancient cultures of the plateau, from the Neolithic to the Iron Age.
objective of this conference will be to take stock, 80 years after the
publication of Ghirshman’s work, on the history of this site and on its central
role for Iranian archaeology. It will also be an opportunity to introduce the
public to more recent Iranian excavations, as well as the current research and
challenges posed by the conservation of an archaeological site in Iran today. Speakers
will include experts from Iran, France, Germany and the UK.
