Archaeologist and National Geographic Fellow Fredrik Hiebert has searched for human history in some of the world’s most remote and romantic places and put them in context—in terms of conflict, history, and culture. As a field archaeologist and explorer on the ancient Silk Road, he has excavated sites along this historic link between Europe and East Asia. His excavations at a 4,000-year-old Silk Road city in Turkmenistan made headlines around the world. Following this most famous of trade routes led him to Afghanistan, where he identified the Bactrian gold, a trove of Silk Road era artifacts lost during Afghanistan’s decades of cultural upheaval. He has also searched for evidence of ancient submerged settlements in the highest lake of the Silk Road and in South America’s Lake Titicaca. Dr. Hiebert looks forward to extending his enthusiasm for archaeology to you through this incredible presentation.
