The Amlash culture is known almost exclusively through the archaeological artefacts that have been recovered in recent decades. Little is known about the people themselves, other than the fact that they were highly skilled artists and artisans. Otherwise, it appears that this ancient culture once inhabited the mountainous regions bordering the Caspian Sea in the north of modern day Iran, thus being neighbours to the Luristan people. According to the archaeological record, their culture appeared to reach its peak between the 9th and 8th Centuries BC.
