Long ago there was a great empire. Probably the greatest ever seen.. But for some reason, it gets left by the wayside when Empires are discussed.
Which is unfortunate, because the Persian Empire is at least as interesting as anything the Greeks or Romans ever did. In any case, we’ve resolved to talk about the Persian Empire for the entire month, and what better place to start than at the very beginning. Before there even was one. Meet the Medes.
