Kashan Plain is one of the important regions of the central plateau of Iran in terms of valuable historical records. Based on case studies and excavations having been carried out in this area during the last 80 years, traces of different periods- from the Paleolithic to the Islamic era- have been identified in different parts of this geographical area. However, different archeological research programs, including excavations, have not made a significant contribution. Therefore, in the first place, a thorough and comprehensive archaeological study program is necessary to understand the archaeological status of this area better. Field archaeology in the Eghbaliyeh area-- located in the northwest of Kashan-- is one of the activities having been carried out in recent years, and its archaeological findings include different prehistoric periods - from the fourth millennium BC, the Iron Age, the historical period, various Islamic periods to present era.This article discusses and addresses questions, including the nature of the archeological site of Eqbaliyeh and the findings of the excavation. Also it elaborates the reasons for the distribution of the findings and the disconnection and turbulence of the ancient deposits. Archaeological evidences indicate that the Eghbaliyeh compound due to its low position has always been a place for sedimentation of seasonal floods of upper parts of the Kashan Plain, which includes cultural materials.
