From 8 June 2021, visitors to the German Mining Museum Bochum were able to explore the Iranian Highlands through numerous archaeological finds and media installations. Two much-discussed concepts were at the centre of this exhibition: Resilience and Integration. Visitors experienced how these helped to shape societies in the Iranian highlands from the Neanderthals of the Stone Age to the Islamic period of the 13th and 14th centuries.
