The Tepe Kalwali graveyard, located in the Ilam district about 30km south-east of Ilam, was excavated by Vanden Berghe’s team in October en November of 1965 (1st. expedition).
Twenty-one rectangular cist tombs, dating back to the Iron Age IIB, were excavated in a plot of 11 by 18 m on top of a natural hillock. Pottery is the major group of burial goods at Tepe Kalwali. Otherwise, there are merely some bronze bracelets, a few bronze rings and some iron blades and daggers.
