Summer 2018: Wk 03 June18-22 Persian Empire - Palo Alto
Week 3: Persia - Gateway Between East and West
Iran, or Persia, stands as a bridge between East and West,
a fact that has made this nation a watershed of history.
Western Iran was influenced by Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome,
while Eastern Iran was influenced by India and even China,
ever since the ancient trade routes cross-pollinated these cultures.
During this week, we walk in the shoes of the Persians at a critical
crossroad in history, when the Sassanid Empire is overtaken
by the force of Islam, a dramatic shift in the history and psyche of
an ancient civilization.
