This monograph is the final report, with full documentation of the excavations at the graveyards at Djub-i Gauhar and Gul Khanan Murdah, located in the Aivan plain, Luristan Pusht-i Kuh. The excavations at these sites (1977 and '78) in Western Iran were directed by Louis Vanden Berghe, on behalf of the University of Ghent and the Royal Museum of Art and History, Brussels. Both burial grounds are to be dated in the Iron Age III (8th-7th century B.C.). The graves contained a rich variety of objects, such as pottery vessels, iron and bronze weapons (daggers, swords, axes, arrowheads, ...), bronze vessels, cylinder seals, and luxury items (finger rings, earrings, bracelets, fibula, beads). All the graves and finds are illustrated in line drawings; most of the tombs and the vast majority of the objects figure also in photo.
