The Louvre Museum and the Museum of Natural History, Paris with the support of Iran Heritage Foundation held a conference entitled “Tepe Sialk A Key Site for the Archaeology of Iran” on November 25th, 2019 in which some of the top scholars in archeology discussed the history of the site and its central role in Iranian archaeology.
Dr. Mohsen Javeri, faculty member at Department of Architecture, Faculty of Architecture and Art, was also a participant in this venue with the presentation “The Protection and Conservation of the site of Sialk”. He discussed the preservation and protection measures that could be legalized to help improve this important historical site.
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.
The objective of this conference was 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 also was 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 included experts from Iran, France, Germany and the UK.
