The paper presents a revised and updated version of the excavation report of the site of Amluk-dara in the tahsil of Barikot, Swat. The original report (Olivieri et al. 2014) was published in the ACT Reports and Memoirs, and it is now about to be out of print. The excavations started in 2012 after the police had stopped with the help of some members of the local community a large looting activity at the site. Additional excavations were carried out in 2016-2017. The excavation was part of the ACT-Field School Project, a project of the PIDSA-EAD/Italian Cooperation Program implemented by IsMEO/IsIAO and Directorate of Archaeology and Museums, Government of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. Fieldwork was carried out in collaboration with the Quaid-i-Azam University (TIAC). The site is now protected, and entirely acquired by the Provincial authorities. The report on the sculptural material will be soon available, as it is now part of a PhD project at the TIAC, Quaid-i-Azam University (Mr. Subhanigul).
