Photographic Imagery of
the Archetypal Achaemenid Tomb
The Project PIAAT – Photographic Imagery of the Archetypal Achaemenid Tomb – of Darius the Great at Naqsh-e Rustam was aimed at presenting a digital mapping of the Tomb’s facade and its reliefs to the accuracy of ±1 inch was finalized in 2018. The project was a total success in providing the most accurate digital rendering of the Tomb and its intricacies to date, based on the collected photographs. With the help of the mapping now at hand, one would be able to fully and completely restore and reconstruct the Tomb’s facade if needs be.
