From 2004 to 2008, We did the research of socio-economic and cultural changes for more than 40 years of pastoral nomads, peasants, and town people living in the Marvdasht at Kor River basin in southern Iran through 4 year series of fieldwork and investigation, which was participated by 4 investigators, 3 temporary research staffs, and foreign researchers.
This 4 year-research project was practiced on the basis of the research results, started and collected in the 1960s by the late Dr. Morio Ono, the previous professor, geography of Tokyo University, and succeeded by many researchers of geography, economy, sociology, and cultural anthropology.
Through this field research project, we've got much fruitful results.
Firstly, we could extend the sphere of research, historically up to the beginning of the modern period and geographically to the extensive rural area including towns where we've got the information of important nation-level historical changes, such as the sedentary process of pastoral nomads, the collapse of landlord-peasant tenant system by land reform after 1962 and Islamic revolution in 1979, and of the regional changes, such as the formation of a new town and the decline of old towns, village history, the development of irrigation system in the rural area, government investment and so on.
