Ancient Middle East II: Age of Empire 1275 BCE
The early 13th century BCE saw the height of the Bronze Age in the Middle East. A group of powerful kingdoms dominated the region.
The Assyrian empire is no more: Medes, Babylonians, Egyptians, Scythians and Cimmerians have all played a part in destroying it.
Cyrus, king of the Persians, has gained control of the huge empire formerly ruled by the Medes.
