SYNOPSIS

Découvrez la plus grande nécropole de l'âge du Bronze jamais découverte en Asie Centrale. Un monde raffiné, tourné vers la beauté et le commerce dans un paysage paradisiaque.

For the past four years, in the black sand desert of Karakoum, close to Merv in Turkmenistan, a team of Italian and Turkmen archeologists has been excavating and exploring the largest necropolis of the Bronze Age in Central Asia. 1500 well preserved tombs revealed their precious treasures, attesting the fruitful trade which flourished in the region 4000 years ago and the complex evolution of this civilisation of the oases, at the crossroad between Mesopotamia, China, Afghanistan and India.
