The Helmand Sistan Project


It takes more than a village to complete a large archaeological project. We were helped with our logistics in the field, with identification of objects and sites we discovered, with discussions with colleagues over the meaning of our discoveries, with the processes of analyzing, documenting, publishing, and archiving our work. We are sure we have forgotten to thank many people who have helped the project over the past 50 years. Our apologies in advance for the omission. Please let us know and we will add you to our list, both here and in our publications.
