Following his decade-long excavations at Tepe Yahya in southeastern Iran, Professor Lamberg-Karlovsky has been engaged in collaborative excavations in the USSR (now Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia). In the summer of 1999, he launched what is anticipated as a long-term. excavation of the site of Panj Piye in Balochistan, Pakistan. This site is a major urban Bronze Age settlement. Over the years Professor Lamberg-Karlovsky has been interested in the cultural interaction and trade patterns that bought distant centers into contact: Mesopotamia, the Gulf, Central Asia, and the Indus Civilization.
