Marek Olbrycht’s research project examines how arms, armor, tactics, and strategy developed in the Arsacid Parthian empire while interacting with its neighbors to the west (Hellenistic kingdoms, Rome), north (Caucasia, Sarmatian peoples), and northeast (Central Asia). His aim is to reshape our understanding of the historical role played by the Parthian empire situated between Central Asia and the “classical” world of the Eastern Mediterranean.
