Chapter Summary

Dahaneh-ye Gholaman is located some 45 km from Zabol and nearly two km from Qaleh Now village in the Sistan and Baluchistan Region in the southeastern part of the Iranian Plateau. The site of Dahaneh-ye Gholaman was discovered in the early 1960s by Umberto Scerrato of IsMEO (now IsIAO). New excavations at Dahaneh-ye Gholaman started in October 2000. During the third campaign of excavations, traces of wall paintings and incised images have been identified in room 25. The most important scene shows a standing man, chariot rider, with a bow in his hand, shooting an animal, most probably a wild boar. In the same room and among a great variety of painted designs, which are only partly distinguishable, there are also remains of an image of a Bactrian camel.
