Susa I style was very much a product of the past and of influences from contemporary ceramic industries in the mountains of western Iran.The recurrence in close association of vessels of three types—a drinking goblet or beaker, a serving dish, and a small jar—implies the consumption of three types of food, apparently thought to be as necessary for life in the afterworld as it is in this one.Together with his wife Tania Ghirshman, he continued there until 1967.
The Ghirshmans concentrated on excavating a single part of the site, the hectare sized Ville Royale, taking it all the way down to bare earth. The founding of Susa corresponded with the abandonment of nearby villages.
These artifacts filled multiple halls in the Museum of the Louvre throughout the late 1890's and early 1900's.
Roman Ghirshman took over direction of the French efforts in 1946, after the end of the war.
Susa is also mentioned in the Ketuvim of the Hebrew Bible by the name Shushan, mainly in Esther, but also once each in Nehemiah and Daniel.
According to these texts, Nehemiah also lived in Susa during the Babylonian captivity of the 6th century BCE (Daniel mentions it in a prophetic vision), while Esther became queen there, married to King Ahasueurus, and saved the Jews from genocide.
The site now "consists of three gigantic mounds, occupying an area of about one square kilometer, known as the Apadana mound, the Acropolis mound, and the Ville Royale (royal town) mound." Susa was one of the most important cities of the Ancient Near East.
