Early Iron Age

Postby Gotravel » Wed Aug 07, 2013 7:08 am

Records become more tangible with the rise of the Neo-Assyrian Empire and its records of incursions from the Iranian plateau. As early as the 20th century BC, tribes came to the Iranian Plateau from the Pontic-Caspian steppe . Some say the arrival of Iranians on the Iranian plateau forced the Elamites to relinquish one area of their empire after another and to take refuge in Susiana, Khuzistan and nearby area, which only then became coterminous with Elam. Others scholars say that the Iranian tribes simply intermixed with the Elamite peoples living in the plateau.
By the mid-1st millennium BC, Medes, Persians, and Parthians populated the Iranian plateau.
