WHAT WERE THE BEGINNINGS OF
GLOBAL TRADING NETWORKS?
The Silk Road was a creation of China’s goal to protect its empire from
attack. While attempting to accomplish this they discovered a route to
the West.
THE SILK ROAD
“The Silk Road was a 7000 mile route that spanned China, Central Asia,
Northern India, and the Parthian and Roman Empires” The Silk Road: Linking Europe and Asia Through Trade
THE SILK ROAD
How did it effect people. Think back to the Columbian Exchange.
THE SILK ROAD – CULTURAL
EFFECTS
While the Chinese silk trade played a minor role
in the Chinese economy, it did increase the
number of foreign merchants present in China
under the Han Dynasty, exposing both the
Chinese and visitors to their country to different
cultures and religions. In fact, Buddhism spread
from India to China because of trade along the
Silk Route, similar to the way Islam spread along
trans-Saharan routes in medieval West Africa.” –

THE SILK ROAD – CULTURAL
EFFECTS
“Marco Polo (1254-1324), is probably the most famous Westerner
traveled on the Silk Road. He excelled all the other travelers in his
determination, his writing, and his influence. His journey through Asia
lasted 24 years. He reached further than any of his predecessors, beyond
Mongolia to China. He became a confidant of Kublai Khan (1214-1294).
He traveled the whole of China and returned to tell the tale, which
became the greatest travelogue.” – Marco Polo and his travels
THE SILK ROAD – MARCO POLO
"When a man is riding through this desert by night and for some reason -falling asleep
or anything else -he gets separated from his companions and wants to rejoin them, he
hears spirit voices talking to him as if they were his companions, sometimes even
calling him by name. Often these voices lure him away from the path and he never
finds it again, and many travelers have got lost and died because of this. Sometimes in
the night travelers hear a noise like the clatter of a great company of riders away from
the road; if they believe that these are some of their own company and head for the
noise, they find themselves in deep trouble when daylight comes and they realize their
mistake. There were some who, in crossing the desert, have been a host of men
coming towards them and, suspecting that they were robbers, returning, they have
gone hopelessly astray....Even by daylight men hear these spirit voices, and often you
fancy you are listening to the strains of many instruments, especially drums, and the
clash of arms. For this reason bands of travelers make a point of keeping very close
together. Before they go to sleep they set up a sign pointing in the direction in which
they have to travel, and round the necks of all their beasts they fasten little bells, so
that by listening to the sound they may prevent them from straying off the path." ---Marco Polo, Travels
ORIGINS OF THE GAME MARCO
POLO
“During journey Marco fell asleep on horse. Horse slowed eventually
stopped, he fell far behind, his father and uncle traveled on unaware.
When he awoke it was dark he had no clue where his father was, He
called out "Polo" (father's title) and his father called back "Marco" Until
reunited.”
“It came from the fact that many people thought that when Marco Polo
didn't know where he was going when he traveled. So just like what
people thought about Marco Polo not knowing where he was going the
same think apples to the person with their eyes closed in the game.”
