At its height, the Achaemenid Empire of ancient Persia embraced all previous civilized states of the ancient Near East-a multinational empire without precedent. This program presents the history of the First Persian Empire, with particular attention paid to the historic architecture of the period's major cities and palaces. Insights into the development of the region by rulers such as Cyrus the Great, Darius the Great, and Xerxes are offered. The ruins of royal residences are also emphasized, and explanations of the architecture and reliefs of palaces, including the Hall of Apadana and Tacara, provide a historical backdrop to the program.
