Louis Vanden Berghe excavated at Tall-i Shogha in 1951 at the start of his research on the prehistory of the Marv Dasht region in Southern Iran. It became the type-site for his Shogha ware and played a significant role in the Fars chronology he developed. Vanden Berghe surveyed the site, collected sherds and excavated graves with Shogha and Qaleh pottery. This paper presents and reviews the information on his research as it appears from his files in the Royal Museums of Art and History, Brussels. The excavator was awarded a selection of the ceramic finds; some of these were later acquired by the Royal Museums. The remainder of the finds, mostly ceramics but also a few metal finds, were at the time deposited in the Persepolis Museum and the Iran National Museum.
