Afghanistan Hidden Treasures - Fredrik Hiebert Lecture Part 6

Part 6 Q&A session: Guest curator Dr. Fredrik Hiebert of the National Geographic Society was present in 2004 when boxes from the National Museum of Afghanistan were opened for the first time in more than two decades. The boxes, kept safe in the basement of the presidential bank vault in Kabul, contained the prized artifacts from the destroyed museum. Thousands of gold and silver items, fragile ancient ivory carvings and imported Greek and Roman trade goods found in Afghanistan were preserved. Freds tale of rediscovery is one of both fabulous art from the center of the Silk Road and remarkable courage on the part of modern Afghans to preserve their own cultural heritage.
