The Project Vashna – Comprehensive Database of Iranian Archaeological Mounds – is the database of more than 6,000 cultural mounds covering the whole of Iran and the interior of the Iranian Plateau. The series are presented in 31 volumes by the Institute for the Study of Ancient Iranian Society and Culture. The project draws from the power of local reports, satellite imageries and Iranian Cultural Heritage Department’s directories to update and provide a comprehensive account of all cultural tepes across the Iranian landscape – regardless of relative significance or lack thereof. The non-discriminatory approach of the project has led to the discovery of thousands of new mounds across the current boundaries of Iran.
