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.
In a landmark exhibition co-curated by Suzanne Conklin Akbari and Filiz Çakır Phillip along with a team of experts, step in to learn more about books along the Silk Roads and their hidden stories.
