From the International Dunhuang Project Video Channel: : Kharakhoto

IDP UK's Video Channel released in August 2010 an issue about Kharakhoto

Kharakhoto meaning 'Black City' was a Tangut city in Etsin-gol delta, Gansu Province. Aurel Stein visited Kharakhoto in May 1914. In September 2008 and using Stein's maps and original photos IDP staff re-photographed the ancient fortress city.
