This site will look at Persia, which at one point had been one of the greatest empires of all time. From this great culture we gained beautiful art seen in the masterful woven Persian carpets, melodic poetic verse, and modern algebra. It is referred to as an “ancient” empire, but, in fact, some Persian practices, such as equal rights for men and women and the abolishment of slavery, were way ahead of their time. The fall of this great dynasty to Islamic control in 633-656 will also be touched upon. Since that time.
surrounding Arab nations have forced the former power to repeatedly restructure changing former Persia into present day Iran. (see “Renaming Iran” for more information).
But with history and culture this rich, it is to no surprise that Persians want to be distinguished from others including their Arab neighbors.
