Ti­tled “Iran – Cra­dle of Civ­i­liza­tion”, the loan ex­hibit made its de­but at the Drents Mu­seum in Assen, the Nether­lands, where it was well re­ceived by mu­se­um­go­ers from June to Novem­ber 2018.

The scheme was ap­proved by the Ira­nian gov­ern­ment last week based on a pro­posal by the Cul­tural Her­itage, Hand­i­crafts and Tourism Or­ga­ni­za­tion, IRIB re­ported. The re­port, how­ever, didn’t pro­vide fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on the event. “Iran – Cra­dle of Civ­i­liza­tion” fea­tures ear­li­est de­vel­op­ments of agri­cul­ture and live­stock farm­ing from the very be­gin­ning to cuneiform clay tablets, gold beakers and or­na­ments, bronze weapons and beau­ti­fully painted ce­ram­ics as­so­ci­ated with suc­ces­sive Ira­nian king­doms.
