Maragheh, located in the northwestern geographical area of Iran, is one of the important areas in the studies of Islamic period of Iran. The name of the city has been mentioned many times in various historical sources and is most often referred to as the seat of the Azerbaijani state. But information on its history and background is very limited, because it has been so far neglected from an archeological point of view. Only few historical and archeological studies have generally addressed the status of formation and sequence of its historical periods. This article presents the results of new archaeological excavations and study, the purpose of this research is mainly attempted to provide a detailed chronology of the status of residence and settlement in the central part of the city by presenting a detailed stratigraphy of cultural materials of different historical eras and adapting them to historical events. The results, obtained in archaeological studies of the historical context of the city, show that the settlement in this part of the city has been started without interruption since the beginning of Islam.
