About Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones - Montgomeryshire Literary Festival

The Great Kings of Persia ruled over the largest Empire of antiquity. At its heart was the fabled palace-city of Persepolis where the Achaemenid monarchs held court in unparalleled grandeur – when they weren’t fighting and plotting against each other for influence and prestige.

As with so many ancient civilisations, our understanding of the Persian Empire has been skewed by the writers who came after. Hear from Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, who wants to set the story straight with his new authentic “Persian version” of the Age of the Great Kings.

Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones is Professor of Ancient History at Cardiff University. He specialises in Achaemenid Persia, Near Eastern and Greek socio-cultural history and in the reception of antiquity in popular culture. He is the Director of the Ancient Iran program at the British Institute of Persian Studies and the general editor of Edinburgh Studies in Ancient Persia. Born in South Wales and educated in Hull and Cardiff, Lloyd travels extensively throughout Asia and the Middle East, especially Iran, often leading cultural tours, and has acted as historical consultant for major Hollywood movies and television documentaries. His new history of the Persian Empire, Persians: The Age of the Great Kings, was published in April 2021.

Session kindly sponsored by Welshpool Printing Group
