ABSTRACT:
A long standing, and still unchallenged belief of historians is that the people of Europe, Iran, and India, with the exception of Hungarians and the Finns, have their ancestry in common. Based on historical evidence and supports from archaeology, historians propose the existence of a pre-historic tribal confederation, called theoretically Indo-Europeans, who eventually spread out from their original homeland to cover the mass of land in western Eurasia. Their language, costumes and cultural characteristics survived in one way or another to the historical time and it is based on comparative studies of various Indo-European languages and cultures that the idea of a common ancestry first came to existence. The Persians are descendents of the Aryan (Indo-Iranian) tribes that began migrating from Central Asia into what is now Iran in the second millennium BC. The Persian language and other Iranian tongues emerged as these Aryan tribes split up into two major groups, the Persians and the Medes, and intermarried with peoples indigenous to the Iranian plateau such as the Elamites.
