Eternal Silk Road?:

New Archaeological Data from Bukhara and its Hinterland

Sören Stark

This lecture will take place in person at ISAW. Registration is required; click through for the registration link. All attendees must be in compliance with NYU's COVID-19 vaccination requirements and be prepared to present proof of compliance if asked to do so. The archaeological exploration of Bukhara lags, compared to other important urban centers in southern Central Asia (such as Merv or Samarkand), considerably behind. Unfortunately, the lack of data is often compensated by clichés about the 'Silk Road,' imagining Bukhara as a flourishing hub of transcontinental trade routes since the dawn of history.
