Cultural Immersion Summer Camp: Persia

Week 5: Persia - Gateway Between East and West
Iran, or Persia, stands as a bridge between East and West, a fact that has made this nation a watershed of history. Western Iran was influenced by Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome, while Eastern Iran was influenced by India and even China ever since the ancient trade routes cross-pollinated these cultures.
During this week, we walk in the shoes of the Persians at a critical crossroad in history, when the Sassanid Empire is overtaken by the force of Islam, a dramatic shift in the history and psyche of an ancient civilization.
