Discovering The Silk Road with Diana Driscoll

The Silk Road consists of a widespread network of trade routes that have been around for over 2,000 years, connecting the West with the East. From Italy to China and all places in between, the Silk Road evolved constantly, engaging travellers and entwining the lives of diverse groups of people. Numerous civilizations, cultures, and religions have been affected by the goings-on along this route. Though there is no definitive answer as to what (and who) comprise the Silk Road, Central Asia lies at its heart. Hear more about the fabled cities and stories with our expert in the field, Diana Driscoll.
