Mannea is the most important state in the first millennium B.C. that ruled a vast part of northwestern Iran for several centuries. The ancient site of Qalaichi near Bukan, is one of the most important sites of Mannea and dateable to around 800-600 B.C. (Iron Age III). The high quality pottery assemblage of Qalaichi is of prime importance and can be classified into fine, common and coarse wares. It contains also a few painted and glazed sherds comparable to material from Ziwiye and Zendan-i Soleyman.
