New Additions to Silk Road Seattle
(Last updated on September 8, 2008)
(September 8, 2008) The beginnings of a new section on Archaeology, containing:
(September 8, 2008) Substantially revised and expanded pages on Silk Road Geography and on the Mongol Empire's capital, Karakorum.
(June 14, 2007) New additions to "Museum Collections of Silk Road Art":
- Revised descriptive links to a number of websites, including the addition of the British Library and the American Numismatic Society.
- Updated material for the Victoria and Albert Museum. Replacement of many earlier, substandard images; addition of quite a few new ones and a lot of links both to the Museum's own database and to objects in other collections.
- An extensive set of pages with objects from the British Museum, a great many of them not yet on the museum's own website. Included are sculptures collected by Aurel Stein at Buddhist sites in the Tarim Basin, a widely ranging selection of other material from China, some Kushan/Bactrian material, and a very extensive selection from the Islamic collections, including representative Islamic coins. Links have been provided to the Museum's own web pages in cases where they exist for objects displayed here; also, there are a number of links to analogous objects in other museums' collections.
(May 2, 2007)New additions to our "Featured Museums" galleries:
Over the next few months, we expect to be adding a considerable amount of new material, including images from the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco and from museums in Stockholm and Berlin. We will also be catching up on deferred maintenance, including eliminating broken links and trying to ensure that our pages work in all browsers (currently Safari does not display our image enlargements).
