The official website of Dr. Kaveh Farrokh (PhD)
Dedicated to the Advancement of Ancient Iranian and Classical Studies.
KavehFarrokh.com is dedicated to the Advancement of Ancient Iranian, Silk Route, Persianate (Turco-Iranian) and Classical Studies. The relationship between ancient Iran and the civilizations of the Greco-Roman world (and its European successors), India, China and the Far East, and the Arabo-Islamic world are a major focus of this website. Civilizations are rarely conceived in a vacuum and are often the result of the synthesis of a number of elements, examples being the Roman Empire, the Silk Route, ancient Iran and India. Accordingly, the fields of Iranian, Silk Route, Persianate (Turco-Iranian) and Classical Studies shall be supported, encouraged and promoted towards the aim of fostering understanding and dialogue.
