British Museum catalogue to accompany the Afghanistan: Crossroads of the Ancient World exhibition. Lots of lavish photos of the items on display plus descriptions and essays giving context for the post war attempts to salvage historical artefacts and keeps them safe.

Exquisite jewellery from 1st century.
