Biographical notes:

Sir Aurel Stein was a Hungarian-born scholar and explorer of the Orient, chiefly in the service of the British Empire. On several archaeological expeditions to Central Asia, his findings and observations coupled with the hoards of documents and art objects he appropriated significantly enhanced Western understanding of the area.
