عنوان مقاله [English]
Central Asia is one of the regions that had interactions with the Iranian plateau during the time, but, unfortunately it is missed in the Iranian archaeological studies. Although this region is attended by some of Iranian archaeologists working in eastern Iran, other archaeologists generally do not have any information about it. Archaeological students do not know something about central Asia, too because they have no lessons about the Central Asia in their courses. However, that is impossible to ignore the interaction between ancient Iran and Central Asia cultures. The Kohl’s book, Central Asia Paleolithic Beginnings to the Iron Age, is one of the best books on this topic, so reading it is so important for the Iranian archaeologists. Kohl has been working in this region for a long time, and he wrote this book thoroughly and comprehensively. . This book is written and fine-tuned in English; of course, in some casesnot referring to some articles, especially in the Iranian arena, can be considered as the flaws in the English text of the book. Unfortunately, the Persian translation of this book is not attractive because the translated text has many mistakes. Inappropriate typing, not regarding the principles of Persian writing and spelling mistakes, wrong translation, and disregarding some keywords, are the main mistakes in the translation of this book.
