Kazeroun County is located in Fars province in Iran at an altitude of 732m asl. The plain of Kazeroun and Lake Parishan sit between two mountain ranges oriented north-west to south-east.
The majority of studies in this area have been conducted by western archaeologists on historical sites (in particular of the Sassanid period) such as the city of Bishapour and at Tange Chogan, Sar Mashad and Tange Ghandil. Prehistoric investigations, on the other hand, have been few. Among research carried out recently, a systematic surface survey of Bishapour was conducted in 2006, the route from Bishapour to Borazjan was traced in 2007, the Palaeolithic sites of the Lake Parishan area were evaluated in 2007, and a survey of archaeological sites in the central Kazeroun plain was undertaken by one of the authors in 2007.
