عنوان مقاله [English]
Problem statement: According to written sources, the city of Beymand was one of the cities of Kerman province in the early centuries of the Islamic era. Beymand was considered to be one of the important cities of this era due to its location on important communication routes such as Shiraz to Sirjan. Some geographical sources have mentioned the distance of this city to old Sirjan as four Farsakhs. However, according to the archaeological studies of Sirjan plain in the past years, its location has remained unknown. The location of this city was studied for the first time in spring 2018 in a project entitled the archeological study of Sirjan plain.
Research objective: This research aims to locate the city of Beymand in the early centuries of the Islamic era. Thus, by matching the written sources and new evidence obtained from the archaeological studies of the Sirjan plain and analyzing and measuring them together, it is possible to accurately determine the exact location of this city in the current geography of the region. The main question of this research is the exact location of this city and measuring the degree of correspondence between written sources and archaeological data.
Research methods: This research used the descriptive-analytical method, and the data were collected from written sources and archaeological studies and matched with each other.
Conclusion: The results show that according to the writings of written sources and their correspondence with the information obtained from archaeological field research, the area located in the northwest of the modern city of Sirjan in the Bagh Bamid neighborhood is the city of Beymand in the early centuries of the Islamic era.
