Hidden Stories: Books Along the Silk Roads

From antiquity to the Middle Ages and beyond, the Silk Roads were trade routes across land and sea that linked Africa, Asia, and Europe. 

Along the Silk Roads, people travelled:  merchants and scholars and pilgrims, knowledge-seekers and diplomats and spies.  Goods travelled:  silk, gold, ivory, porcelain, paper, furs, and amber.  Stories, ideas, and skills travelled. 

And books travelled, too.
