Iranian-German team to start archaeological survey in Kerman

February 19, 2019

TEHRAN – A joint team of Iranian and German experts is about to start an archaeological exploration across southern regions of Kerman province, southeastern Iran.

The Cultural Heritage and Tourism Research Center will conduct the project in close collaboration with the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, CHTN reported.

Nader Alidadi-Soleymani from Iran and Professor Peter Pfälzner from Germany will co-lead the survey, which will cover Kahnouj, Rudbar and Manujan counties, a local official said.

Some 20 researchers, archaeologists, and interdisciplinary specialists will collaborate in the project that is scheduled to be running through early April.

The big and sprawling Kerman province has been a cultural melting pot since antiquity, blending Persians with subcontinental tribe dwellers. It is home to myriad historical sites and scenic landscapes such as Bazaar-e Sartasari, Jabalieh Dome, Ganjali Khan Bathhouse, Malek Jameh Mosque and Shahdad Desert to name a few.
