This article relates to The Warlord's Son

Print Review

With so much focus on Afghanistan's troubles over the last quarter decade it's easy to forget that this is a country with a long and cultured past.  At a time when most of Western Europe was wallowing in the Dark Ages, following the fall of the Roman Empire, Afghanistan's location made it a pivotal meeting point between the countries of the East and West.  Although most of the cultural treasures from that era have either been destroyed or have disappeared from the country, some have been recovered, including a cache of 20,000 golden objects which were thought to have been lost.  National Geographic had an interesting article on the 'Bactrian gold' and other Afghan artifacts in their December 2004 issue.
