Harold Bailey's first two undergraduate years were highly successful and, no doubt for financial reasons, he took an appointment at the beginning of his third year as an Assistant Master at Guildford Grammar School. One of his former pupils paid tribute in a book of school reminiscences to Bailey’s ability to inspire him to love ancient history.
The Zayn-al-Din Minaret is a rare Kashan landmark surviving from the Saljuqid period, built by Ḵᵛāja Zayn-al-Din. Despite its historical significance, the minaret has suffered from lack of proper maintenance. Its height, which is recorded at one time to have reached 47 meters, is now only about 22 meters.
Fascicle 2 of Volume XVI
The most recent fascicle in the print edition of Encyclopædia Iranica appeared during the second quarter of 2013. This fascicle continues the development of letter “K” topics. It begins with the ancient KASSITES and ends with the beginning of titles with initial Ke-. Especially notable in this fascicle is the comprehensive survey of the Kayanid dynasty in the traditional history of Iran, as recorded in our sources both pre-Islamic and Islamic. This entry by Prof. P. O. Skjærvø, under the title KAYĀNIĀN, is now available at this website, along with all other entries in the fascicle.
