Abstract

This article seeks to reintroduce the reader to the reported archaeological evidence for the Susa I cemetery (ca. 4000 BCE), incorporating into the discussion information from the Roland de Mecquenem Archives de Suse (1912-1939) published online in 2011 by Noëmi Daucé. A re-examination of the cemetery and related massif funéraire based on the combined evidence from these reports challenges the widely held notion that the funerary practices of the inhabitants of Susa involved second-degree or fractional burials.
