Description

Showcasing some of the most remarkable archaeological finds in Central Asia, this exhibition provides a glimpse into the world of the ancient Silk Road. Featuring almost 230 priceless objects from between 2200 BC and AD 200, this exhibition showcases sculptures, jewellery and gold work of extraordinary beauty and significance.

Objects included in the exhibition are from four significant archaeological sites that reflect Afghanistan's place at the heart of the ancient Silk Road. They are crafted from precious materials such as gold and turquoise and reflect influences from Egypt, India and Greece, among others.

The objects in this exhibition were once thought to have been lost forever: casualties of warfare, looting and destruction. In reality, during those years of turmoil the director and curators of the National Museum in Kabul had - at great personal risk - secretly hidden them, preserving them for future generations and keeping their nation's culture alive.
