2015B: preliminary report of the discovery of Salut settlement

Archaeological investigations carried out at the Early Bronze Age site ST1 and in the wide areas surrounding the Iron Age “fort” of Salut, from November, 1st, to December, 14th.

The second campaign of 2015 at Salut has led to an unexpected discovery: the actual, major Iron Age site that has to be linked with the already excavated “fort” of Salut to form what can be considered one of the most impressive sites of this date in the whole South East Arabia.

Moreover investigations at the Bronze Age Tower have been continued with the excavation of a new trench right on the northern edge of the ditch. Here the ancient soils that had been identified in the previous section have turned out to be of later (Iron Age at the least) or so far indefinable date.

The description of this discovery, in addition to the results of the work at the Bronze Age Tower are available in the preliminary report.
