Treasures from the National Museum of Afghanistan, exhibit in London

An opportunity to enjoy a piece of the history of Afghanistan at the British Museum
"Surviving treasures from the National Museum of Afghanistan"
Nearly lost during the years of civil war and Taliban rule, these surviving treasures reveal Afghanistan’s ancient culture, its immense fragility and its remarkable place in world history ...
Unfortunately, there is no dedicated page to the objects displayed in the exhibit, just a slideshow on the right of the general secton of the website, "Explore the objects".  But there is a intersting blog with more information on the development of the show, started some weeks prior to the opening.  There is a segment with videos from the museum's website dedicated section.

And more information in Youtube's Bristish Museum channel:
