EXPLORERS CLUB LECTURE SERIES: Unveiled Secrets of China's Taklamakan Desert




New York, NY (April 23, 2012) - Author Christoph Baumer's lecture involves the archaeological results from his winter 2009 expedition to the heart of China's Taklamakan Desert, where he discovered an Iron Age graveyard that indicate links to nomadic steppe cultures much further north, along with a Bronze Age necropolis that revealed a surprising fertility cult and a 4,000-year-old unknown archaeological horizon. The naturally mummified corpses he found bore clear Indo-European traits, and the sites witness the existence of "Silk and Jade Road" trade routes 2,000 to 4,000 years old.
