Matthew P. Canepa published “The Iranian Expanse. Transforming Royal Identity through architecture, landscape, and the built environment, 550 BCE-642 CE” and our reconstruction of the Seleucid Bit Resh is part of it! We are very happy about this publication and are even more happy to announce, that we will give away one copy of Canepas book! It is currently 88$ at Amazon, so you are welcome! You can participate via our Social Media channels, so make sure to follow us either on Twitter or Facebook. On either network, find the corresponding post and share it, that’s all. The give-away ends on the 15th of November 2018!
Today is Independence Day in the US. You’re not really celebrating freedom if you don't support the right to seek safety. 🎆 🎇
in some future year
we shall be worthy
of days of celebration
but in the present year
we should only observe
days of mourning.
