The shah of Iran

This week, I was able to visit the British Museum and see the fascinating exhibition “Shah ‘Abbas: The Remaking of Iran”. This tells the story of seventeenth-century Iran through the reign and legacy of one of its most influential rulers, Shah ‘Abbas I who reigned 1587–1629 and founded the capital of Isfarhan.
I would always have been interested in this exhibition because I am keen on Middle Eastern history and Islamic architecture, but I was especially attracted to the event because I hope that we will holiday in Iran in the Autumn.
