The remarkable story of conservation and repatriation of the Begram Ivories. Excavated in the 1930s, the ivories were part of the collection of the National Museum of Afghanistan in Kabul but went missing during the unrest in Afghanistan. They re-emerged in 2010 and have been conserved at the British Museum. The ivories will soon be returned to the National Museum of Afghanistan.
