Ancient Sasanian Empire Subject of June Symposium

The Sasanian Empire, which ruled much of Central and Western Asia for over 400 years (224-651 CE), will be the subject of a symposium, “From Oxus to Euphrates: the Sasanian Empire,” to be held from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7th , in Northeast Pavilion of the Thomas Jefferson Building, located at 10 First Street S.E., Washington, DC. The symposium is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required.

This symposium is organized by the African and Middle Eastern Division at the Library of Congress, in cooperation with the Iranian-American Alumni of the Alborz High School. It is part of an annual series of symposia on the ancient civilizations of the Near East organized by AMED. The videos of previous years’ symposia are accessible from the AMED homepage.
