BtB 2016 - The Buried City of Susa

by


Cropped against the horizon of the scorched plains of Juzistan, in southwest Iran, the great ruins of Susa rise. Here, under a series of mounds, lies the remains of a large city that controlled important itineraries that departed from ancient Mesopotamia to the east, crossing the Zagros mountain range.

According to the Persian tradition, Susa was the first city in the world. Susa was founded by the legendary King Hushang who discovered the way to make fire with iron and flint. Undoubtedly, it must have been one of the earliest: urban life flourished at the beginning of the fourth millennium BC, and its craftsmen made some of the most elegant ceramics in the world: stylized vases, decorated with birds and hunting dogs. Lara will travel there in search of ancient artifacts.
