Bactrian Documents from Northern Afghanistan III : Plates, Hardback Book

Bactrian Documents from Northern Afghanistan III : Plates Hardback

Part of the Studies in the Khalili Collection series

Description

During the last twenty years, more than 150 documents in Bactrian, the language of pre-Islamic Afghanistan, have come to light.

These documents, which have been deciphered and published by Nicholas Sims-Williams, provide unique information on the history of Afghanistan and neighbouring lands in the 4th to 8th centuries C.E., as well as revealing a Middle Iranian language which was hardly known before.

The purpose of the present volume is to illustrate the new documents as comprehensively as possible.

In addition to 230 pages of photographs, the volume contains a complete catalogue of the documents.
