A detailed report on two of the sites discovered by the Belgian Archaeological Mission in the Aivan plain, Iran (1965-1979). Although many of the graves uncovered were looted and badly damaged, a small number remained intact. Each cemetery is described separately, with drawings of the tombs and their contents: pottery, metal and miscellaneous objects. Alas, no summary and very little interpretation of the wider context of the discoveries.

Both burial grounds are to be dated in the Iron Age III (8th-7th century B.C.). The graves contained a rich variety of objects, such as pottery vessels, iron and bronze weapons (daggers, swords, axes, arrowheads, .), bronze vessels, cylinder seals, and luxury items (finger rings, earrings, bracelets, fibula, beads).
