      August through October 2008 once again found the dedicated archaeology
      professionals of the Italian Archaeological Mission in Old Nisa in the field
      making new discoveries. The joint Italo-Turkmen team spent the season
      continuing excavation of the Arsacid capital city at Old Nisa in
      Turkmenistan, adding to the knowledge we have of the Parthians. The mission
      was carried out by the Centro Ricerche Archeologiche e Scavi di Torino in
      collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National
      Department for the Protection, Study and Restoration of Historical and
      Cultural Monuments of Turkmenistan.

      A web page highlighting the Nisa 2008 season has been published on the
      Parthia.com web site at http://parthia.com/nisa/nisa2008.htm Also visit
      http://parthia.com/nisa/ where you will find links to pages about previous
      eight years' archaeological expeditions to Nisa.

      The web page briefly describes the season's work with thumbnail pictures
      that link you to larger images of the archaeological site, artifacts and
      members of the expedition.
