Silk Road was and is a network of trade routes connecting the East and West, from the 2nd century
BCE to the 18th century CE. It was central to the economic, cultural, political, and religious
interactions between these regions.
[1][2][3]
“The Silk Road” usually refers to certain land routes, but it
may also refer to sea routes that connect East Asia and Southeast Asia with South Asia, Persia,
the Arabian Peninsula, the Near East, East Africa & Southern Europe. The Silk Road derives its
name from the lucrative trade in silk that was carried out along its length beginning during the Han
dynasty in China (207 BCE220 CE). Around 114 BCE, the Han dynasty expanded the Central
Asian sections of the Silk Road trade routes. The expansion was partly led by the missions and
explorations of China’s imperial envoy, Zhang Qian, and partly accomplished through a series of
military conquests.
