In 2014 the Karakalpak-Australian Expedition to Ancient Chorasmia (KAE) resumed the archaeological investigation of the Central Monument at the site of Akchakhan-kala in modern-day Uzbekistan/Karakalpakstan. This paper presents the results of the 2015 fieldwork season, supplementing, when possible, those relative to the first campaign which have been published recently.
