The Old Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes that carried goods, culture, philosophy, and ideas from China all the way through Eurasia to the Mediterranean Sea and back again. Although the term “Silk Road” itself is a relatively recent appellation, coined by German historian Ferdinand von Richthofen in the 19th century, trade in silk and other goods along the routes began as far back as the Han dynasty (207 BC – 220 AD). In addition to trade, the Silk Road was instrumental in the spread of Christianity and Buddhism. We explore the 100 years of trade which amounted for Billons in transactions between India and China.
