... heir to Simon Dubnow's mantle. Gil delights in telling his audience that the Arabs had never heard of Charlemagne, his kingship over Jerusalem, or the white elephant allegedly given to him by a master of Baghdad. Moreover, the Franks had never heard of Charlemagne's supposed friend, Harun al-Rashid, either. Einhard's saga Vita Karoli only mentions a Persian king by the name of Aron who - with some stretching of the written fable - was identified with the fabulous character. A genuine caliph of Baghdad going by the name of al-Rashid is on record for the 13th century. He gave an undisputed elephant to Emperor Frederick II of Hohenstaufen (1212-1250) who, beyond doubt, made himself ...

... .6 .02 It seems the apple we know today originated in Central Asia in the forests of the Tien Shan. When people began to trade along what became the Silk Road it was carried west and the technique of grafting, developed in Mesopoamia nearly 4,000 years ago, led to the best varieties being passed on to the Persians, Greeks and Romans, who eventually carried it to Britain. There is no genetic evidence that it was ever hybridised along the way. Domesticated cattle in Africa, however, did not come from the east but were domesticated from now-extinct wild, native cattle 9,000 years ago. They have since been interbred with Asian and European ...

... the minotaur of Crete, or the chimera of Epirus ; but it would be folly to expect seriously to find such monsters in nature. We might as well endeavour to find the animals of Daniel, or the beasts of the Apocalypse, in some hitherto unexplored recesses of the globe. Neither can we look for the mythological animals of the Persians, creatures of a still bolder imagination such as the martichore, or destroyer of men, having a h uman head on the body of a lion, and the tail of a scorpion ;* the griffin, or guardian of hidden treasures, half eagle and half lion ;f or the cartazonon, *Plin.

... at the moment of the last great flood, the land area careened to its present latitude, where it again became inhabited by human beings; but these new peoples did not possess the art of painting pottery, which characterized the artifacts of the race that had been destroyed by the flood. Ur of the Cbaldeans was probably located on the Persian Gulf, though it is now about 115 miles inland. The sea level has not remained constant, as explained elsewhere, and the lower delta of the Euphrates River has extended into the Gulf. Clues to this are the record found at Ur of a marine hero, conqueror of storm and sea, and artifacts indicating trade with distant ...

In such a division the Himalayas, the Persian Mountains, the Caucasus, Carpathians and Italian Apennines should be included as part of the original scheme. But when this occurred the southern parts of the Pacific lay within the region of the then North Pole, and of course Europe lay in the Southern Hemisphere, assuming always that these vast impacts of meteors came from the direction of the ...

... we should obviously beware of draping current ideologies onto ancient cultures. At the political junction between Central Asia and Iran, and on the Silk Road, lies the forgotten city of Merv. It was once one of Central Asia's greatest cities which matched Baghdad, Cairo and Damascus in medieval times. It is said to have been founded by the Persian king, Cyrus the Great (559-530BC), and was part of the eastern Achaemenid Empire. Archaeological digs are difficult because the site is buried under later buildings but the next settlement, established by Alexander's successor Antiochus I (281-261 BC), was built alongside and flourished for over 900 years. A third great site at Merv was ...

The long mail shirts illustrated by Ramesses II at Karnak are mainly worn by his Hittite opponents, whilst the Neo-Assyrian' troops of Shalmaneser III are, as I would argue, actually Mitannians (Ramessides, Medes and Persians, New York, 2000, pp. 24-29). 4.

... interesting variant of this dream is found in the Ambales Saga, and it can hardly have come from Cicero. [n7 Gollancz, p. 105.] However all that may be, there is more than enough to suspect that the story goes back even farther than the Roman kings. Accordingly scholars undertook to investigate the link with the Persian legend of Kyros, which turned out not to be rewarding. But Saxo himself, even if he read Valerius Maximus, contains features which are certainly outside the classical tradition, and he shows another way. 24 From the Narrenspiel the account of Hamlet's ride along the shore is worth a second look: He notices an old steering oar ...
