Sir Aurel Stein in The Times
Sir Aurel Stein in The Times (Helen Wang, ed, 2002) is an unusual record of a British explorer’s life based almost entirely (with the exception of the compiler’s comprehensive Introduction) on clippings from The Times of London.
Sir Aurel Stein (1862-1943), renowned for his breath-taking archaeological exploration in Chinese Central Asia, India, Iran, Iraq and Jordan, and for his pioneering work on the early civilizations on the Silk Road, is the subject of this compilation of over 100 articles and news items relating to Stein and his expeditions, as printed in The Times newspaper between 1901-1943.
