Haftavan Tepe in the Urmia basin, excavated by Charles Burney, is a graveyard and a settlement site with Iron Age I (Haftavan V) and II (Haftavan IV) remains in a stratigraphic context. The author presents a classification of the Haftavan IV pottery from the settlement and the graves. He argues that the presence of new wares and shapes in period IV should not necessarily be explained by the arrival of newcomers to the region (Iranian tribes). Some changes could be explained as local developments, others as resulting from ties with NW-Iran and the central Iranian plateau.
