Some used to say Samarkand – in central Uzbekistan – was at the center of the world. Alfred follows the ancient Royal Road to the city – associated with the great Turco-Mongol warrior Timur, who was also famed for his refinement and elegance.

Alfred visits Timur's mausoleum and the imposing public square of Registan, journeying back in time with the help of a local historian. He then ventures outside the city to meet an art restorer and learn about the history of the caravans, the envoys and the Sogdians – a once important people who controlled trade on the Silk Road in ancient times.
