Ancient Persia

History and Treasures of an Ancient Civilization

Anna Vanzan

From the fifth century BCE to the arrival of the Arab populations around 651 CE, this richly illustrated volume describes the civilizations that developed on the Iranian plateau during the pre-Islamic period: the Achaemenids, Seleucids, Parthians and Sassanids. As well as the riches of the surviving archaeological sites in Iran, the book explores the cultural cross-fertilization over the vast area covered by pre-Islamic Persian empires.
