Lecture: Dr Shahrokh Razmjou: The Puzzle of Median Art

28 June 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Recording available. 

Median art to this day remains a mystery in the art of the ancient Near East. Despite the numerous references to the Medes in historical sources, the lack of primary sources and the uncertainty of artefacts has cast a shadow over Median art and its existence. This lecture will look at evidence of Median artistic elements that are hidden within Achaemenid art and will discuss the related evidence in the Median Period and its possible format. The result will present a picture of what could have been Median art.

Wednesday 28 June 2017at 6.00 pm at the British Academy, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH.

The event is FREE & open to all but booking is essential.   Please reserve a place by emailing  bips@britac.ac.uk.

The lecture will be given by Dr Shahrokh Razmjou,   an Iranian archaeologist, specializing in Achaemenid Archaeology and History.   He is currently working at the University of Tehran.
