The research group on Islamic Ghazni was established in 2004 to work on the IsIAO archives of the Italian Archaeological Mission in Afghanistan under the coordination of Roberta Giunta. After the dismissal of IsIAO in 2012, the group remains in charge of the data management. The research is still ongoing.
