SES Explorer, AUGUSTA THOMPSON led a team to Mount Kailash in Tibet, carrying out a study of the role that material culture plays in connecting different cultures, races and religions to build a symbolic community and serve as a peace-making tool. The data, and a documentary filmed during the expedition will be used to raise awareness of, and to record the unique culture and its heritage of the Indo-Tibetan region. Augusta has presented her expedition experiences and findings in the USA and in the UK.
