Pottery Bank

Pottery is one of the most important archaeological data that is found sufficiently in ancient sites and plays an important role in the study of cultural communication, cartography, faith beliefs, routine life and thought of societies and humans. Pottery has also emerged as a factor to transfer concepts that arose as a result of changes in the past, and the most indicative of all human works expresses the artistic concepts of each period by its rich forms and decorations.

These pottery are mostly related to archaeological excavation in tang-e Boulaghi by Iranian and foreign groups. Some pottery is also related to archaeological survey and excavation of other parts of the Pasargad Region.
