|HIS 368 - The Silk Road|
The Silk Road: Trade and Travel in Eurasia to 1500
This course offers an introduction to economic and cultural connections across Eurasia from antiquity until about 1500. The main aim is to get beyond the political history of states & dynasties to see how goods and ideas moved between civilizations in the pre-modern world. The focus will be on the great overland "Silk Road", but we will also consider other routes of exchange, such as the Indian Ocean, the Tibetan Plateau, and the Sahara Desert to understand pre-modern trade and exchange on the global scale.
