Why Toshkhana?

Toshkhana is Farsi for ‘treasurehouse’. I have read a lot over the years and have remembered a lot of what I have read; some trivial and some important.

However, when one studies history as a narrative of events past, these trivial or important incidents are what make up it’s flesh, bone and blood.

I thought that this blog would be a good way of putting up to a wider audience many of these trivia that all and sundry will find interesting. If this interest can ignite someone’s inflammable mind, the purpose of my blog will have been served.
