Silk Road: Kazakhstan - Restoration Works

Language: Pусский

Silk Road on the territory of Kazakhstan is divided into several main sections (parts). Represented and marked by monuments of history and culture these sections (roads) are original and have distinct features distinguishing them one from each other.

Archaeological explorations of the ancient settlement started in 1964. Works were recommenced in 1998 within the scope of South-Kazakhstani Archaeological Complex Expedition of the Institute of Archaeology of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan, during which the object identified as “Buddhist Temple” was dug out, and the dwelling farmstead at the citadel of ancient settlement was explored. In 1999-2000 the works were conducted in the “farmstead of a wealthy man” which located in the south-east part of the ancient settlement.

The VHS contains 3 segments: 2 documentaries about the restoration works, and 1 introduction speech by UNESCO Director-General Koichiro Matsuura.
