    The 2020-2021 Gandhara Connections Lecture: Rory Stewart - Walking in Afghanistan

    Save the date! We're delighted to announce that this year's Gandhara Connections Lecture will be given online by Rory Stewart at 6.00pm BST on 2nd June 2021.

    For our fourth annual Gandhara Connections lecture we go online, with the former diplomat, politician, writer, walker, and polymath, Rory Stewart OBE. Among his many interests, the history and heritage of the 'Gandharan' regions, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, have been an abiding concern, notably in his writing (his bestselling The Places in Between) and his work through the Turquoise Mountain Foundation.

    More details of this lecture will be announced soon, but it is possible to register now through Crowdcast on:

    Our new website is coming soon!

    We are looking forward to launching our newly designed CARC website in the next week. This is the site's first redesign since 2011 and has several purposes. The site will be more up-to-date and visually attractive, offering a shop-window for our numerous resources, but more importantly, it has been restructured to make the relationship between resources more rational and many of the pages more accessible. Behind the scenes, a new content management system will help us to keep information up to date, consistent and accurate. Our Gandhara Connections project approaches its conclusion in 2022, so while retaining its own identity aimed at its particular audiences, the Gandhara site will be integrated in the main CARC site. So too will the pages for CVA Online – the digitized Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum project, which we host on behalf of the Union Académique Internationale.

    It is important to stress that there will be no change to the way our databases work and little has been removed from the website: you should still be able to find all the material you are familiar with. However, the urls for pages will change, so if you are not redirected to the equivalent page on the new site, please navigate there from the homepage and renew your bookmark.

    We hope that you enjoy the new site and welcome feedback. We will be monitoring its usage and taking account of suggestions as we make adjustments over the coming weeks.
