TL;DR: Madjidzadeh (in 2003a, 37) states that almost 1,000 objects were plundered, in 2003b (p. 25) that local authorities claim thousands of artifacts were ploddered in the area.
Abstract: An evaluation of information and assertions about “Jiroft” artifacts and the nature of their ancient culture explained in the 2003 Catalogue and the other published reports forces one to confront basic archaeological methodology, here concerning cultural and historical interpretations and evaluations involving unexcavated artifacts known solely from multiple confiscations, and with no records preserved of these acquisitions. Revealed is this, at present there is no knowledge of Jiroft-Aratta (i.e., from excavations in the Jiroft area), and very little available of “Jiroft” except a number of objects. Between the two conceptions there is a profound epistemological and archaeological difference (but one would never know this from the “Jiroft” literature: alleged archaeological attempts at conclusion-forming procedures have altered very little in the last fifty years). Madjidzadeh (in 2003a, 37) states that almost 1,000 objects were plundered, in 2003b (p. 25) that local authorities claim thousands of artifacts were plundered in the area. Keywords:archaeological methodology; earliest oriental civilization; Jiroft artifacts; Jiroft-Aratta; Yousef Madjidzadeh
