Sammanfattning

This paper considers the archaeology of contemporary erapast in a Middle Eastern country, Iran. Far from the Western context of raise and development, this archaeology has raised and developed in Iran in spite of political pressure. The most encouraged form of archaeology in Iran is still nationalistic and conservative archaeology being supported by the political structure which denies any other branches of the discipline. However, the archaeology of contemporary past is practiced in a limited scale but it has gradually extended its scope and subjects. Highly dependent on context, it has enriched the ways and methods of practice under dictatorship. The archaeology of contemporary past is still in its infancy in the Middle East but the pioneers of the subfield try to consider the dilemmas and challenges in Iran and modern Middle East. Iran contemporary archaeology not only investigates conflict, tensions, political (and armed) oppositions but also everyday life and disastrous contexts. Key words: Iran, contemporary past, politics, dictatorship, modern history, governmental archaeology.
