Re-Creating Afghanistan: Unearthing a Cultural Heritage

Officials in Afghanistan are desperately trying to save an archaeological treasure: an ancient city estimated more than 1,000 years old that was recently uncovered when thieves were arrested with artifacts from the site. On Morning Edition, guest host Renee Montagne reports on the country's efforts to protect its cultural heritage. It's the latest part of NPR's series "Re-Creating Afghanistan."
