The earliest sedentary cultures in the Marv Dasht plain were revealed through the excavations at Tape Djari A, B and Tall-i Mushki by the Tokyo Univ. Iraq-Iran Archaeological Expedition in 1959 and 64. The cultural assemblage of Tape Djari B has not yet been cleared and we are now checking and studying the objects.
The pottery of Djari B shows in its technic some differences from that of Mushki, especially in using thick over-coating. But the fundamental cultural contents of Djari B are common to the preceding phase and we should like to call them “Mushki-Djari complex”. This belongs to the Zagros Neolithic Cultures and is dated to the 2nd half of the 7th millennium B. C.
After a hiatus of the whole 6th millennium B. C., a new tradition came there from Susiana in the early 5th millennium B. C. This hiatus seems to show the decline of the early mixed-farming cultures in the Zagros.
