Events John PilkingtonThe Old Silk Road to Afghanistan

BUY TICKETS

Award-winning adventurer John Pilkington is one of Britain’s most experienced adventurers and public speakers. After a career as an author and photographer, he spent many years with the BBC World Service and Radio 4, making travel documentaries and contributing to programmes such as ‘From Our Own Correspondent’.

In this talk hear how, in 2011, John followed a spectacular branch of the Silk Road, starting in the Caucasus and crossing the Caspian Sea to Bukhara, Khiva and Samarkand. Reeling from the beauty of those legendary cities, hear how he turned south-east to explore the High Pamirs of Afghanistan – a region well-known to Marco Polo – before a dramatic finale at the source of the Oxus in the heart of Central Asia.
John has spoken to over 1,000 audiences in six countries, and holds the Royal Geographical Society’s much-coveted Ness Award for popularising geography and the wider understanding of the world.
