The Silk Road: Get on The Beaten Track
The movement of people, commodities, culture – and, yes, silk – along the Silk Road is one of the oldest connections between East and West. The interest in fabrics, spices and animals from far off lands held an intrigue that quickly made the Silk Road an essential intercultural connection of its time.
Building a Global Economy
The Silk Road a network of pathways that criss-cross Central Asia; from China, through the Middle East, to Italy and onward to Europe. As trade routes picked up during the Middle Ages, the paths became more frequently travelled. The increased traffic attracted local merchants, markets, and inns to the Silk Road path; in turn, creating settlements.
Even more important than the physical landscape that the Silk Road created were the cultures, customs, and languages that it helped fortify. Civilizations began to meet, and interactions with other languages developed, ushering in an opportunity for the separate civilisations of the world to meet through the global economy.
Today, many of these sites and cultures prevail, paving the way of the Silk Road, and outlining the path once followed by merchants and explorers.
