Preliminary Report on the Excavation at the Neo-Elamite site of Kalānter 4, Northeastern Khuzesta

Archaeological reconnaissance in the Gotvand Dam Basin area in 2007 led to the identification of a number of archaeological sites dating to various cultural periods. One of these sites, known as Kalāntar 4, was proposed for rescue excavation. Architectural remains and two NeoElamite semi-underground stone tombs were discovered, which have enhanced our knowledge of the Neo-Elamite period in the highlands of Khuzestan. Based on ceramic comparisons, there are significant similarities between the assemblages from Kalāntar 4 and those of Susa (Ville Royale II and Ville Royale A), as well as with Neo-Elamite sites in the nearby Mianab-e Shushtar plain further to the southsouthwest. Furthermore, architectural research based on an ethno-archaeological approach indicates some continuities in the architectural traditions of this area from at least the NeoElamite period to the present day
