(p.1) Introduction
Hellenistic Far East

Rachel Mairs

University of California Press

The Hellenistic Far East is a region encompassing those parts of Iran, Central Asia and India which fell under the rule of Greek kings in the period after Alexander the Great. The history of the modern ‘discovery’ of this region in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is one in which archaeology and politics were seldom separate. Archaeologists working in Afghanistan have been caught up in war and political instability. In other regions, such as Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, political ideologies have had an impact on archaeological research.

Keywords:   Hellenistic Far East, Afghanistan, Alexander the Great
