Abstract :
Moush Tepe is located in the middle of the residential parts of Madani County in the north of Hamedan, and it is also 5 km from the north of Tappeh Hegmataneh (Hegmataneh Mound). In 1988, due to constructing a new county in Hamedan, this site was placed inside the urban areas; and consequently, it got dramatically damaged. The remaining parts of this ancient mound measuring roughly 900 m3 in area were excavated. Archaeological excavation begun in 2002 and continued for four more seasons till 2005. In the course of these excavations, a mud-brick structure with striking similarities with the storehouses of Nush-i Jan Tepe was discovered.
