general info
In 1841, some material (including gold vessels) from the site was sent to the Shah (Mohammad Shah Qajar), and examined by Clement Augustus (C.A.) de Bode, piquing initial modern interest in the site. The first modern excavations were done by Frederick Wulsin in 1931, sponsored by the Atkins Museum of Fine Arts. Grey ware pottery from the site was found and studied. In the mid-20th century, the site (a hill) had a height of approximately 30m. In 1959, Jean Deshayes (1924-1979) rediscovered the site, and regular excavations began soon after until 1979
