In Search of the Kingdom of Lou-Lan

In Search of the Kingdom of Lou-Lan. Introduces the region just east of the Taklamakan Desert–with striking shots of the terrain. Has an interesting segment on the way in which Lake Lop Nor has “moved” historically and the explanations why.

Various archaeological objects–coins, Roman beads, written texts–showing the international connections of the kingdom that flourished here nearly 2000 years ago. One of most interesting segments shows the excavation of some tombs, with the uncovering of mummified bodies.

    This is quite wonderful. I can remember watching as a young man in Scotland and being spellbound. It has lost none of its magic. A masterpiece.
