At present, Lewin B. Barringer, the Philadelphian a v i a t o r , is winging his ship over the rugged mountains and fertile valleys of ancient Persia. Barringer was called into service by a joint expedition of the University of Pennsylvania museum, the Oriental museum Museum of Chicago, the Boston of Fine Arts and the American Institute of Iranian Art and Archeology. Each of these institutions has carried out considerable work in [ran and other eastern countries, but the current adventure is be- ieved to be the most extensive ever :o have been undertaken. Value of Plane Stressed. The value of air-travel to ar- :heologists is emphasized by Dr. Erich F. Schmidt, field director of the joint expedition in Iran. With his wifg he has returned to .Philadelphia for a brief vacation before resuming his duties with the expedition. Although a young man and a scientist of the modern school, Dr. Schmidt has achieved a wide rep- jtation in his field. For the past 'ive years he has developed significant projects in re-creating the history of ancient times. In his opinion, the airplane is indispensable to so vastly conceived a program as the one under way in Iran. He -pointed out that it was only by air-travel that necessary contact with the numerous men in the field could be made. "The plane," he said, "is the key to the success of such a co-operative enterprise as that being conducted in Iran." Mounds Sighted From Air. "In many cases," he continued, 'before we started our excavations. We flew over the country we were exploring to get a good view of thi terrain and make aerial photographs. If we saw a mound which might conceivably be an ancient site, we would swoop down and continue pur investigations." The plane used by the expedition is named "The Friend of Iran." It was presented to the joint societies by Mrs. Schmidt, who first accompanied her husband on his explorations in 1934. She is a student of the science. Among the discoveries unearthed by the group were eight stone tablets, each inscribed with cuneiform characters which related the histories of the Iranian kings. Traced to Darius the Great. Some of the tablets discovered at Persepolis, the ancient capital of the once powerful Persian empire, were more than two feet long. They were embedded deep, beneath the cornices of the king's castle. Among the most important is one inscribed under the direction of Darius the Great, .the founder of Persepolis. The ancient capital played a significant role in the rumble of world history. It lay only 35 miles northeast of what is now the modern city of Shiraz. Part of the great city was pillaged by Alexander the Great about 330 B. C. The northern section of the city was unharmed, however, and it was in this sector that the successful work was executed. The ruins of this city have yielded the most pertinent links in the chain of history which contemporary archeologists a r e fashioning of the ancient kingdom. Dr. Schmidt, displaying a restive energy and desire to return soon to his work, said that the "finds," in themselves, are not important. Used to Trace Culture. "In fact," he said, "we do not like to refer to them as finds. An object discovered is, after all, only a means toward a purpose. Archeology is confined not merely to digging up objects, but rather in using such specimens for determining the development and culture of a race." He declared that the spirit of friendliness and co-operation re fleeted in the acts of the Iranian government was most earnest anc helpful. Among other highly pertinent discoveries searched o u t from under the very earth are gold coins of Iran, Byzantium and Egypt, anc a Chinese bowl which dates to 1100 A. D. This last is significant because it supports the belief that trade was carried on at the time between the Byzantine empire and China. The principal work being done now by the University of Pennsylvania and Boston museum units at the Islamic city of Ravy. which was ransacked and ruined by Genghis Kahn, the Mongol conqueror, in the thirteenth century.
