Zoroastrians have been around for over 2,000 years. Their influence can be found in Christianity and Islam, and they bring you cultural relics like the zodiacs. Today, we’re going to go deep in our Human history, maybe further back than we’ve ever gone so far on Step Back and tell the story of this ancient and endangered religion.
