This landmark exhibition, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Ancient Orient Museum, showcases more than 250 masterpieces from prehistoric Eurasia to the early Modern Silk Road world, ranging from Palaeolithic stone tools and horse riding bits to silk textiles, coins and brilliant porcelains. Every representation from museum/academic and private collections entreats us to reconsider our past images of the ancient Silk Road in the light of new discoveries. The main focus of this exhibition is how ancient people and their products dispersed across the enormous landmass, what cultural heritage tells us about their history, and how humans created the Eurasian world.
