Item description for Luristan Excavation Documents V: The Iron Age III Graveyard at War Kabud (Chavar District), Pusht-i Kuh, Luristan (ACTA Iranica) (v. 5) by E. Haerinck & B. Overlaet...
This monograph is the final report of the excavation of the War Kabud graveyard in Luristan, Iran, by the University of Ghent and the Royal Museums of Art and History, Brussels. The excavations, directed by Louis Vanden Berghe, were conducted in 1965 and 1966. War Kabud represents the largest number of excavated tombs (203) in a single Pusht-i Kuh cemetery. Dating back to the Iron Age III (8th-7th c. BCE), it is a representative assemblage of burialgoods and testifies of the homogeneity of the material culture of that period. Burials are individual and the dead were usually accompanied by pottery and quite often also by iron weapons (arrowheads, swords and daggers, spearheads, axes), bronze maces, vessels, anklets, bracelets and a variety of beads. The site, although essentially with a local material culture, shows some relations with Assyria. All finds are illustrated in line drawings, the tombs and the main objects also inphotographs.
