  • Samarkand, Uzbekistan - Crossroads of Cultures

    Samarkand, alternatively Samarqand or Samarcand, is one of the oldest inhabited cities in Central Asia, prospering from its location on the Silk Road between China and the Mediterranean.

The Bibi-Khanym Mosque remains one of the city's most notable landmarks. The Registan was the ancient center of the city. The city has carefully preserved the traditions of ancient crafts: embroidery, gold embroidery, silk weaving, engraving on copper, ceramics, carving and painting on wood. There is evidence of human activity in the area of the city from the late paleolithic era, though there is no direct evidence of when exactly Samarkand was founded, some theories are that it was founded between the 8th and 7th centuries BC. By the time of the Achaemenid dynasty of Persia, it was the capital of the Sogdian satrapy. The city was taken by Alexander the Great in 329 BC, when it was known by its Greek name of Marakanda. The city was ruled by a succession of Iranian, Persian, and Turkish peoples until the Mongols under Genghis Khan conquered Samarkand in 1220. In 2001, UNESCO added the city to its World Heritage List as Samarkand – Crossroads of Cultures.

It also highlights the material and ideological changes that have turned the Iberian Peninsula into a mixture of cultures. Parts of that culture were also reflected in Mexico, after the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in 1519. [Felix Jimenez, Curator]: "The Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Arabs of course they all form part of the current Mexico. Through this culture (brought by the Spaniards), I think that's what stands out." Benito Traibo from INAH says the exhibition shows the development of culture. [Benito Traibo, INAH Coordinator]: "The position of the human being in the universe is represented here and how these became mixed and intertwined, creating this mixture of races and cultures which became so important. Originally we have a drop of each one of these civilizations because we are also a product of a cultural merger between the Spaniards and our original people, pre-Hispanic people." Different cultural time periods are shown in a chronological order from the remote past to the Modern Age. The pieces show how vital parts of Spain's culture such as its economy, technology, art, society and war have evolved. "Spain, Civilization Crossroads," closes on October 5, 2008.

Lecture byJoshua Torres, PhD, archaeologist for the U.S. National Park Service in Washington, D.C. The presentation provides new data on pre-colonial cultures of the region and show how the Virgin Islands was a fulcrum for the emergence of pre-colonial societies evident at the time of European contact. Specifically, this lecture explores the major periods of socio-cultural development, models of migration, pre-colonial lifeways, regional interaction networks and the emergence of the ancient theocratic chiefdoms known as cacicazgos. The presentation features the latest archaeological/scientific evidence from the region, high quality maps and graphics, and images of artifacts from the Folmer Andersen and other collections from the U.S. Virgin Islands. Similarities and divergences in material culture and radiometric dates demonstrate the ways in which pre-colonial groups created and maintained unique local and regional socio-cultural identities. Histories from a Shared Past – A Transatlantic Lecture Series was held in June 2017 at the Danish National Archives in Copenhagen and was organized by the Danish West Indian Society and the Danish National Archives. The Danish West-Indies: Sources of history In 2017, it is 100 years ago, since Denmark transferred the three West Indian islands, St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John, to the USA. Denmark was a colonial power in the West-Indies for almost 250 years, and, quite uniquely, a huge number of historical documents have been preserved from that time. To mark the centennial, the Danish National Archives has carried out a project to digitize all the letters, illustrations, descriptions and records, and make the documents available for everyone on a new website. The project includes documents equivalent to approximately 1,200 linear meters of shelf space. Altogether there are about 5 million digital images. Several of the documents are included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Therefore, it is a unique material – also seen from an international perspective. The documents include fascinating stories about famous islanders and Danes, and horrific stories of a hard life with slavery, oppression and barbaric punishments. Together, they give a unique insight into the past for historians as well as for the societies of the US Virgin Islands and Denmark – and for the descendants, whose ancestors lived and died during the colonial period. A donation from the A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation for General Purposes made the project possible, and it was carried out in collaboration with the Danish Ministry of Culture.

Samarkand is the second-largest city in Uzbekistan and the capital of Samarqand Province. The city is most noted for its central position on the Silk Road between China and the West, and for being an Islamic centre for scholarly study. In the 14th century it became the capital of the empire of Timur (Tamerlane) and is the site of his mausoleum (the Gur-e Amir). The Bibi-Khanym Mosque (a modern replica) remains one of the city's most notable landmarks. The Registan was the ancient center of the city. In 2001, UNESCO added the city to its World Heritage List as Samarkand -- Crossroads of Cultures. (Source : Wikipedia)
