Persian Gulf is undeniably among the most important bodies of water in the world and a very important shipping route. With its large reserves of fossil fuel it plays a very if not the most important role in global fuel security. Located in the Middle East, the cradle of civilization, money, and writing, it must perhaps be the first body of water navigated systematically by the grand empires of the ancient times.
Since the coastal lands, especially the northern coast, of this gulf have been home to the most powerful empires of all time that date back 3 millennia, Persian Gulf’s name can be frequently found in annals of history and ancient accounts of events. Recently, there have been attempts to hijack the identity of this body of water. In this movie experts and academics from around the world provide the historical truth behind the Persian identity of this Gulf.
