Summary:

Based on archaeological discoveries, this volume traces the history of humanity in this vast region from the Palaeolithic beginnings to circa 700 BC preceding the foundation of the great Achaemenid Empire. The Stone Age with the beginning of food production, the great civilizations of the Bronze Age with the early process of urbanization from the Indus to the Oxus and the Iron Age are thoroughly studied. No less important a place is given to the history of nomadic pastoral tribes, such as those of the Indo-Iranians.
