The Late Antique (500-651) in Iran was a continuity with the past and the future? Or was a great break with the conquest of Arabian Domination? Was the Sasanides Empire connected to a “World History”?

Khuzestan is a region more powerful and more near to the powers. During the Late Antique devoloped a innovative systems of irrigation and also introduce new types of craps (like rise and sugar). The city of Shustar demonstrates that!
