Title : Circle of ancient Iranian studies (CAIS)

Description :
The Circle of Ancient Iranian Studies (CAIS) website contains articles on the archaeology of Iran as well as news, pictures and a list of events. The website was still incomplete at the time of the review, but it contains enough information to be useful. This website has been produced by a group of amateurs with the participation of academics. The section on news appears to be updated daily and it can be a precious resource for both students and researchers to remain updated on recent discoveries. The gallery of pictures can be useful primarily to students. The "articles" section is a comprehensive collection of texts on the archaeology of Iran, but quality varies and not all the articles have adequate bibliographic references; students should not rely primarily on these articles to prepare academic essays, especially when using articles without references. Some illustrated short reports about excavations may be used by researchers.Considering the difficulties in obtaining updated information on recent archaeological research on Iran, this website may be very useful primarily to researchers as a source of information on recent work and discoveries as well as to students looking for pictures.
