Archaeologists begin excavation of 3400 year old wall
A combined team of German students and Iranian archaeologists have begun excavating a huge wall discovered in the 3400 year old ruins of the ancient city of Kabnak in Khuzestan Province, Iran.
The students, from the University of Tubingen, accompanied Iranian archaeologist Dr. Mofidi to the ruins of Haft Tappeh, where Kabnak is located, last year, and have now returned to continue their work.
The archaeologists believe that the wall was part of a tall building. Prior to the Islamic Revolution, archaeologist Ezzatollah Negahban suggested that the huge wall was part of a ziggurat.
