Cultural Routes of Eurasia

The Silk Road in the early 20th century and today. In the Project 'Cultural Routes of Eurasia' the Asian Art Museum (Berlin) digitised the important historical photo collection of the German Turfan Expeditions. In November 2008 an IDP-CREA team photographed ruins on the southern Silk Road to compare their condition to historical photos from the early twentieth century.
