Sialk Tepe of Kashan is one of the first permanent human settlements in Iranian Plateau and contains remains dating from 7th millennium BC (Neolithic period) until third Iron Age (Median period) and because of its sublime cultural and historical values, deserves more researching attention. This ancient zone has been afflicted by numerous damages through the recent century; destructive phenomenon of town expansion has always harmed the archaeological zones such as Sialk which are located within towns. Along with destructive expansion of Kashan towards Sialk, farmers of the region have also overrun the zone and occupied some of its lands for farming. To prevent such activities and preserve landscape zone of Sialk, Cultural Heritage Organization of Kashan with assistance of Kashan Municipality has conducted an archaeological researching program titled “speculation for specification of archaeological zone of Sialk and proposition of its borders” which resulted in determination of exact boundaries of this zone.
Keywords: Sialk Tepe, Archaeology, Borders of Sialk Zone, Landscape Zone.
