New book for Javier Álvarez-Món, Department of Archaeology

Dr Javier Álvarez-Món, Lecturer in Near Eastern Archaeology at the Archaeology Department, has just published a new book entitled The Arjan Tomb: At the Crossroads of the Elamite and the Persian Empires, a study based on archaeological evidence from the Arjan tomb, an undisturbed elite burial site near the town of Behbahan in south-western Iran.

Javier’s primary research interest concentrates on the ancient Iranian civilizations of Elam and early Achaemenid Persia. His book, the 49th in the Acta Iranica series, provides a scholarly reassessment of the survival of Elamite traditions and the emergence of the Persian Empire, through an examination of the Arjan tomb, dated ca. 600-550 BC.
