Herrmann, Georgina
The Iranian Revival (1977)
In: The Making of the Past (Series)
Oxford: Elsevier-Phaidon, 1977
Abstract: Beautifully illustrated, this book covers the Parthian and Sasanian periods; the 150 pages are about equally allocated to the two dynasties. Most of the illustrations are in color and many are far superior to those in other books on the topic. There are maps, and also diagrams of several archaeological sites. The approximately 8x11 inch (20x28 cm) page size allows a nice layout.

The text is targeted at a general audience, but students and scholars will also enjoy Herrmann's style and insights.

Paris: UNESCO Publishing, 1991
Abstract: After Alexander the Great had vanquished the Achaemenid armies, those of Central Asia and of northern India, a force had to be established to control the acquired territories. A new art of war was thus created in Central Asia combining nomadic light cavalry tactics (Parthia) with heavy cavalry (Cataphract), the equivalent of a modem-day tank. Horses from the steppe and iron technology from the cities form the fundamentals of this weaponry. The author goes on to quote several iconographical (Assyrian relief work) and literary sources (Livy: Battle of Magnesia in 189 BC under Antiochus III). She describes in detail the technology of lances, bows and arrows capable of piercing armour, and the development of equestrian equipment (bridles, bits, saddles and stirrups). British research is at present under way on the efficiency of these ancient models. Contribution of Russian and Chinese research findings on bows found in Siberian kurgans are discussed. The technology for assembling the strips using fish glue is particularly enlightening. [UNESCO bibliographic database]

Archaeological history of Iran (1935)
In: The Schweich lectures, 1934
London: Oxford University Press, 1935, 112 p.
Abstract: Presents a seemless view of Iranian material culture from neolithic times to the end of the Sasanian period, making frequent forays into Islamic times en route to point out striking continuities. In the course of this enquiry he was able to identify numerous recurrent ideas, themes and motifs. This holistic approach elided chronological divisions and conversely highlighted the remarkable continuities in Iranian art.

Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul (2008)
2008, 304 p.
Abstract: Exhibition catalog. The exhibition, co-organized by the National Geographic Society and the National Gallery of Art, will travel to the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, October 24, 2008 through January 25, 2009; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, February 22 through May 17, 2009; and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, June 23 through September 20, 2009. After its tour through Paris, Turin, and Amsterdam, the show was reorganized for the United States and accompanied by this new catalogue.

Revealing Afghanistan’s multicultural heritage are some 228 objects ranging in date from 2200 BC to the second century AD. Drawn from four archaeological sites, they belong to the National Museum of Afghanistan in Kabul and include fragmentary gold bowls with artistic links to Mesopotamia and Indus valley cultures (modern-day Pakistan) from the Bronze Age site of Tepe Fullol; bronze and stone sculptures and a gilded silver plaque from the former Greek colony at Aï Khanum (“Lady Moon”); bronzes, ivories, and painted glassware that had been imported from Roman Egypt, China, and India, and excavated from ancient storerooms discovered in the 1930s and 1940s in Begram; and more than 100 gold ornaments from the “Bactrian Hoard,” found in 1978 in Tillya Tepe, the site of six nomad graves, and revealing a synthesis of Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian, Chinese, and Siberian styles.

Part 3 discusses the question of the existence of a written Avesta in Arsacid times, Part 4 the evidence derived from Avestan and Pahlaavi texts for the way the tradition was handed down, and Part 5 the linguisstic and graphic evidence for the transmission of the Avesta. Finally, Part 6 deals briefly with the Avesta alphabet before summarizing the results in Part 7, the conclusion. [Author] Large bibliography.
