    Fire Temples and Towers of Silence: Zoroastrian Architectural Legacies

    NEAF Public Lecture
    Professor Alison Betts
    (The University of Sydney)

    The Zoroastrian tradition has its roots in Central Asia in the fi rst or even the second millennium BCE but we see little of it in the material record until a massive fl oruit in Sasanian times from the 3rd century CE onwards. This talk will provide a background to the rise of the Zoroastrian tradition and the material and architectural evidence that tells its story.
