Explore the culture of ancient Persia (modern day Iran) as we look at works of art made in bronze, clay, and paper dating from about 1,000 BCE to the 17th century CE. Learn how Persians lived, their love of fashion and poetry, and their contributions in the field of medicine and science that still benefit us today.
