Restituted Relics on Display

The recently returned Chogha Mish historical artifacts are now on display at the National Museum of Iran, CHN reported.  The 8000-year-old artifacts, returned by the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute on April 22, were unveiled in the presence of the institute’s director Gil Stein, deputy head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts, and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO), director of museum affairs Mohammad-Reza Kargar, and director of National Museum of Iran Mahnaz Gorji. Stein referred to the Chogha Mish collection as a ‘great treasure’, as it revealed a considerable amount of information about trade and economy of Khuzestan Province in the past. “The artifacts may seem insignificant pieces of clay with no apparent value; but they provide valuable information about Iran’s ancient civilization,” he noted. He also expressed hope the Oriental Institute could cooperate with Iran in the near future in archeological matters.
