Results of this work include the exposure of monumental architecture on the Citadel and domestic and industrial architecture in the lower town of Konar Sandal South. Radiocarbon dates, monumental sculpture, glyptic art and ceramics all indicate a date in the Bronze Age ranging from 2880 to 2200 B.C. The ceramics are compared to material from Bampur, Tepe Yahya and Tal-i Iblis.},
