Ancient History, Archaeology, Iranian Studies
Statement: My research project examines how the arms, armor, tactics and strategy developed in the Arsacid Parthian empire while interacting with its neighbors to the west (Hellenistic kingdoms, Rome), north (Caucasia, Sarmatian peoples) and northeast (Central Asia). My intention is for the project to reshape our understanding of the historical role played by the Parthian empire situated between Central Asia and the “Classical” world of the Eastern Mediterranean.
