In Part 3 of this series on ancient Elam, we continue our study of Elamite history by taking a look at the Middle Elamite Period. Though fascinating, it's also a period that's shrouded in mystery. Still, we know by some of the monuments and cities, such as Kabrak (Haft Tepe) and Dur Untash (Chogha Zanbil) that this was truly a remarkable civilization as well as a prosperous time for Elam. It was also a time of relative peace with the neighboring peoples of Babylonia and ancient Mesopotamia, at least until the intervention of the Assyrian king Tukulti-Ninurta. You wont' want to miss this episode on the history of ancient Elam!
