Final report and study of the Early Iron Age (Iron Age I - II) graveyards which were excavated by the Belgian Archaeological Expedition in Luristan (West-Iran) between 1965 and 1979.
The book consists of three main sections. The first part is a general introduction to the archaeological research in Luristan. It includes a survey of all the excavations in Luristan that provided information on the Iron Age. The second part is a study of the Pusht-i Kuh graveyards, the tombs and their gravegoods. It results in the proposal of a refined chronology for the Pusht-i Kuh region in the period between 1300-1250 B.C. and 800/750 B.C. The third part provides the full excavation data on the 11 graveyards under discussion. A general introduction to each graveyard is followed by the presentation of the different tombs with their burialgoods. These are presented in both line drawings and photographs.
