The authors wish to acknowledge the help they received during fieldwork by numerous assistants, amongst them Mustafa Kharambur, Ali Zaldaghai and Ali Keshavarz Alleg. In addition to being a great help in the field, Reza Sohbati undertook an extensive evaluation of the seismic data for the study area (see Quigley et al., 2011). Financial support came from the British Institute of Persian Studies and support in kind by the Iranian Center for Archaeological Research and the University of Tehran. The OSL ages were determined in the luminescence laboratory of the Sheffield Centre for International Drylands Research. The School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne under Professor Hergt facilitated desktop research following the fieldwork and Dr Cupper helped to further contextualise the OSL data. The comments of two anonymous reviewers have greatly improved the manuscript.
