This book offers a new history of the ancient city of Rayy. Based on the results of the latest excavations and surveys, and on the study of historical and geographical texts, the complete occupation sequence of the city comes to light, from its foundation in the Iron Age and the Parthian reconstructions (2nd to 1st centuries BC), up to the Mongol invasions and rapid depopulation in the 13th century CE,.
