Experts verify Bakhe-Nam as Sassanid permanent habitation





A team of Iranian archaeologists confirmed that the Sassanids used the ancient site of Bakhe-Nam as a permanent habitation.

The team led by Bayan Pirani was assigned by the Ilam Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Department (ICHTHD) to precisely demarcate the site, which is located in the southern city of Ilam in western Iran.

“In the course of their excavations, the team has unearthed the remains of slag, the ruins of kilns, and a number of shards dating back to the Sassanid period,” Pirani told the Persian service of CHN on Monday.
