Sasanika's Mission
One of the most remarkable civilizations of the first millennium CE was that of the Sasanian Empire. Emanating from southern Iran's Persis (Fars) region in the third century AD, the Sasanian domain eventually encompassed not only modern day Iran and Iraq, but also the greater parts of Central Asia and the Near East, including at times the regions corresponding to present-day Israel, Turkey, and Egypt. 

This geographically diverse empire brought together a striking array of ethnicities and religious practices. Arameans, Arabs, Armenians, Persians, Romans, Goths as well as a host of other peoples all lived under the Sasanian rule. It is the aim of Sasanika: the Late Antique Near East Project to bring to light the importance of the Sasanian civilization in the context of world and late antique history.
