Sir Aurel Stein [1862-1943] explored the neolithic to medieval periods and covered the area from the Persian Gulf to the Pacific watershed. "He expanded knowledge of Europe's cultural heritage to include the Eurasian landmass and the interactions between each of its four high civilizations: the Mediterranean West, the Indian, the Iranian and the Chinese."
