Abstract

THE CHRONOLOGY AND CULTURE OF SÉ GIRDAN: PHASE III OSCAR WHITE MUSCARELLA In 1968 and 1970 six of eleven surveyed tumuli were excavated by the author at a site called Sé Girdan, a few miles northeast of Dinkha Tepe and about 15 miles southwest of Hasanlu and Lake Urmia in northwestern Iran (Fig. 1); the reports of the excavation were published in 1969 and 1971. 1 The six tumuli (labeled I to VI) were laid out in a roughly straight row, NW-SE. Four of their tombs had been plundered at some time in the past. All the tombs were neatly cut pits; all were rectangular, except VI, which was an irregular oval; II and IV had stone lined walls; III was a plain pit, while V and VI had only the upper border of their pits lined with courses of  at stones; II and III (IV?) had pebble  oors; all the tombs but IV had a stone rubble overlay; and all tumuli were encircled at their perimeters by a rubble stone revetment.
