We are currently offering for sale: "Sand Buried Ruins Of Khotan" by Sir Aurel Stein, a popular account of his first archaeological expedition into Central Asia from 1900 to 1901.
It is his most charming and exciting book which is partly a witty and entertaining travelogue, partly a journal of exceptional archaeological exploration and partly Stein’s proof to himself that his theory of the long lost Buddhist kingdoms of the Silk Road and the Serindian culture they supported was indeed correct.
It is something of a detective story for it contains his own description of how he unmasked Islam Akhun, the forger of the strange documents in unknown script which had so long puzzled the academic community.
