Abstract and Keywords

The highlands of Fars contain a large number of important Bronze Age sites and assemblages. This chapter reviews the major ceramic sequences at Tal-e Malyan and Darvazeh Tepe in the Kur River Basin, and the associated Banesh, Kaftari, Qaleh, and Shogha/Teimuran assemblages found there; Tol-e Nurabad and Tol-e Spid in the Mamasani region; and Tepe Jalyan, Tal-e Vakilabad, and Tal-e Zohak in the Fasa-Darab region further south. Emphasis is placed on building up a comparative chronology for the Bronze Age ceramic assemblages of Fars province and elucidating the distinctive assemblages in each region. The implications of the ceramic evidence for our understanding of population dynamics, settlement strategies, and regional political organization are discussed.

Keywords: Fars, Tal-e Malyan, Darvazeh, Tepe Banesh, Kaftari, Qaleh, Shogha/Teimuran, Mamasani, Tol-e Nurabad, Tol-e Spid
