Sogdian Classes

Professor Nicholas Sims-Williams is planning to teach Sogdian at the Ancient India and Iran Trust, 23 Brooklands Avenue, Cambridge at 1-3 pm on Thursdays, starting Thursday, 15th January, 2015 and continuing until Thursday, 26th February.

The class will start straightaway reading the Cosmological text published by Henning, BSOAS 1948. Prof. Sims-Williams will supply text, translation and glossary, and will explain each point of grammar as it comes up, so there is no expectation that students will have studied Sogdian before.

Anyone who plans to attend should send him an e-mail so that he can prepare the right number of copies. His E-mail address is
