The New Chronology started with creation of new mathematical, statistical and astronomical methods of dating of events, described in the ancient sources. Based on these methods the correct chronology of the Ancient Times, named by us New Chronology, was restored. After this we in general reconstructed the ancient history ("built up body on the skeleton of the correct chronology") right until the XVIII century. Then the next very interesting stage came. Many people started to ask us: what actually the "antique" authors - Herodotus, Thucydides, Titus Livius, Homer and others tell about? Answering this natural and extremely important question we, in several books, analyzed the main "ancient"-Greek, "ancient"-Roman, "ancient"-Indian, "ancient"-American, "ancient"-European sources. It appeared that they actually tell about the events of the XI-XVII centuries A.D. And they were wrongly, or more likely, intentionally, put to the deep past by the Scaligerian historians of the XVII-XVIII centuries.
Now it's turn of the famous "ancient"-Persian Epos Shah Namah. This is an epic and rather popular source, telling, as considered, about the events on the territory of Persia, Greece, Byzantium in the "deepest ancientry". Shah Namah gives us information about many hundreds of personages and about many important events.
In the present book we show that the huge Epos Shah Namah (six thick volumes in the used by us academic edition) actually tells about the events of the XII-XVIII centuries, which took place mainly in the Great Empire of the XIII-XVII centuries. The most part of Shah Namah tells, as appeared, about the Great Distemper in Russia of the XVI – beginning of the XVII century that is in the mother country of the Great Russian Empire.
It appeared the "ancient"-Persian Epos kept a lot of interesting information about Russia-Horde of the XIII-XVII centuries, lost in the Russian-Romanovs version. With this the poem of Ferdausi now lets us clarify many dark sites of the medieval Russian history, which was written by the tendentious Romanovs' historians.
Now Shah Namah and other famous "antique" sources, acquire new importance. It is necessary to read them attentively with a fresh look, understanding that on their pages a lot of valuable information about the history of the Great Empire of the XIII-XVII centuries remained.
So, for the last years we reviewed actually all the main, most famous primary sources on the "universal antiquity". In future we hope to spread our analysis also on the other ancient texts, among which there are definitely very interesting and important, although, probably, not so fundamental, as the ones studied by us.
We are grateful to T.N.Fomenko for valuable observations.
All the results, stated in the book, were received recently, are new and published for the first time.
