AbstractThis article explores what is known and not known about Yazd and its nearby settlements from antiquity through the ninth/fifteenth century. The article begins with deliberation on the location of the city in pre-Islamic and Islamic times. The investigation expands to include examination of the urban center, its polity and faith-based communities, the arrival and flourish of Islam, plus the survival of Zoroastrianism and Judaism there. Reconstruction and new construction, administrative and economic activities, and roads and waterways within the wider Dašt-i Yazd (‘Yazd plain/valley’) are discussed in relation to the city.
