ICHTO Approves Forgotten Empire’s Journey to Spain

 

 

 

10 September 2005

 

Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization has agreed to allow the exhibition Forgotten Empire: The World of Ancient Persia, currently underway at the British Museum, to be transferred to the Kaisha Foundation in Spain for another showcase next year, CHTO Director Esfandiar Rahim-Mashaii announced on Saturday.

Organizers had said earlier that they were prepared to stage the exhibition in other cities in order to introduce the world to genuine Iranian culture.

 

Forgotten Empire tells the story of the Achaemenid Empire (circa 550-331 BC), which was the largest empire the world had ever seen at the time.

 

The exhibition, which opened officially on September 9, will continue until January 8, 2006.
