Iraq: A Brief Visual History

Align CenterGreat 'Abbasid Mosque in Samarra

Here is a PowerPoint presentation I designed awhile ago for the final oral presentation of an Arabic course I took. The subject is the history of Iraq, with a particular focus at the end of the presentation on the historical importance of the geography of the country to Shi'i Islam. The presentation was accompanied with a written script, which I have not reproduced here. However, there are LOTS of images. Enjoy, and please forgive any typos or errors. I have tried to catch them all but am sure that I have missed some.
