I’m doing research for school on the Achaemenid period of the Persian Empire and I am having hard time finding information. So any suggestive reading or documentaries on this topic would be appreciated.
Also, does anyone know who one of the leading archaeologist in the Achaemenid period is? Or what is the main organization that researches Persian history?
Why is it we have a distorted view of Persian history? What has gotten in the way of our seeing Persia as it was? What kinds of things, specifically, do we see a distorted image of in Persia during the Greco-Roman times?
