Nomadism in Iran

From Antiquity to the Modern Era

D.T. Potts

  • A completely new approach to nomadism in Iran, one which rejects the identification of nomads in the archaeological record of the Neolithic and Bronze Age (c. 8000-1200 BC)
  • Emphasizes the fundamental changes brought about by major influxes of nomads from outside the region, beginning in the 11th century
  • Assembles a wealth of material in several languages and disciplines
