Susa is one of the oldest cities in the world. Excavations have established that people were living at the acropolis in 5000 BCE and have shown the existence of urban structures about 4000, and we can be certain that the town, situated on a strip of land between the rivers Shaour (a tributary of the Karkheh) and Dez, was already a political center of some importance.
Many objects from Susa have found their way to museums in Iran and Europe. The site itself has a nice little museum; other objects can be found in the Louvre (Paris), the British Museum (London), and the Archaeological Museum in Tehran
