Abstract:

"This catalogue provides a unique insight into the wealth and splendour of Persian society - its magnificent palaces, exquisite craftsmanship and sophisticated administration. As the palace was central to imperial life, the objects illustrated are grouped in themes within a palatial context, the remains from the royal sites of Susa and Persepolis providing the major focus. Included are sections on gold jewellery, luxury tableware, religious and burial customs, and transport and commerce. Also discussed is the expansion of the Persian Empire, including the Graeco-Persian Wars, and the rediscovery of Ancient Persia."--Jacket.
