Abstract: The Zahāb Plain is always one of the noteworthy and considerable areas in archeological studies in west of Iran. The presence of numerous ancient mounds related to the prehistoric times up to the Islamic periods and also identification of cultural re ma ins of diffe rent periods indicate importance of this region well. Also environmental and strategic condition of the plain in order to connect to Mesopotamia is another reason of this significance. Background studies of Zahāb region dates back to the first half of the nineteenth century. At that time in his journey from Zahāb to Khuzestān, Rawlinson released noteworthy information about the region. After that, several studies and activities were done by archaeologists and researchers with regard to this region; however those studies had been more focused on the historical periods. In 1968 and 1970 some archaeological surveys were conducted by Ali Akbar Sarfaraz and Saeed Gan javi, respectively. Afterwards, in 2007 during the archaeological survey directed by Shahin Kermajani, many archaeological sites were identified, which had been attributed to the prehistoric, historic and Isla mic periods. Following local reports of Qaleh Bahadori village about the presence of ancient cemeteries in the region, in 2015 the preliminary research carried out with the aim of identifying and introducing these cairn tombs in two villages of Dasht-e Zahāb rural d istrict, which have not been discussed heretofore. Due to the pro ximity of ce meteries to the village and co mmute of peasants, shepherds and nomads in these ways, the tombs were also visited by the authors; However the lack of knowledge and confidence about the security of some areas in Sarpol-e Zahāb–where is still a mine-polluted region due to the Iran-Iraq imposed war –resulted in putting off the identification and research on those area to the future
