Hidden Treasures of Afghanistan | Fredrik Hiebert  

July 2nd | 2:00PM ET

For thousands of years, Silk Road caravans traveled through the mountainous country of Afghanistan.

More than 20 years later, National Geographic archaeologist Fred Hiebert went to Afghanistan in search of these hidden treasures. Join Fred to learn about this lost-and-found story–both about the treasures of the Silk Road and the Afghans who saved them.
