Abstract: After the earthquake on December 2003, an appropriate basis was provided for the archaeological studies and researches. As soon as preparation of the world heritage nomination documents by Dr. Chahryar Adle, the archaeological subdivision of Bam Foundation concentrated on "Rescue Archaeology".Considering to the particular circumstances of Bam explicitly:
1- "Continues life" from a mysterious time, which is earlier than Sassanid Period,
2- "Insufficiency of the archaeological studies",
3- Recent "restorations" and "reconstructions".
Debris removal was inevitable; consequently debris removal was a prerequisite for the comprehensive and systematic archaeological studies of Bam.
Considering to inexistence a unique method for the documentation of such debris removal processes, a new method which can be suggested for the same samples was organized.
