The geomagnetic method enables archaeologists to study architectural structures underground without doing any excavations.
The team also plans to prepare an archaeological map of the city, team director Kurosh Mohammadkhani, who is a graduate of the Sorbonne University, told the Persian service of IRNA on Sunday.
“Due to the fact that Dahaneh Gholaman is a single-layer archaeological site, the geomagnetic studies on this site are very important. This is the only Achaemenid site that contains information on the lifestyles of the ordinary people,” he said.
For the first time, the studied will produce information on the urban planning system during the Achaemenid period, he added.
“Persepolis, Pasargadae, and other Achaemenid sites in Susa have frequently been studied, but these sites are all royal palaces,” Mohammadkhani noted.

Powerful words.

why is it that anyone and everyone who disagrees with your gibberish is automatically a "Zionist" and is residing in Tel Aviv?  What, you think that you're some sort of a "freedom fighter?"  Dude, you're a chicken sitting behind a computer in the comfort of your air conditioned home posting nonsense from Pakistan Daily Star on day in and day out.  You're nothing but a coward and hypocrite.  If you had an ounce of devotion to the Palestinian cause for which you beat your chest day in and day out, you'd be in Gaza fighting alongside your Arab brothers.

As an aside, we all know you get your orders from people in Iran.  After all, all South Lebanese fighters such as yourself do.

Now, here's s smiley face for you. :-))))

I am glad you take your instructions from your Iranian boss. Maybe when he instructs you to destroy Persepolis withh bulldozers as Khalkhali once tried you will carry it out without hesitation. You are desperately trying to sell your crdentials as a lover of Iran but fall flat on your face. Even the Terrorist Regime media has reported Persepolis is likely to be be gone in 10 years through reckless neglectand the bas reliefs of Naqse Rostam are suffering immense damage from a lack of basic maintenance and funding for its upkeep. I have not even mentioned the caress construction of the Sivand dam which even Terror media has reported is destroying areas of major archaelogical importance including Cyrus's tomb in Pasaaargad. You can never reinvent yourself as an Iranian no matter how hard you try. The bottom line is that when you die you will be burried facing a black box in Mecca and that shows that in death your life your allegience was to Islam. You are a Muslim which means you have already negated your nationality.


I will take my Iranian boss
