About the Silk Road

Throughout history, Eurasia was criss-crossed with communication routes and paths of trade, which gradually linked up to form what are known today as the Silk Roads; routes across both land and sea, along which silk and many other goods were exchanged between people from across the world. Maritime routes were an important part of this network, linking East and West by sea, and were used for the trade of spices in particular, thus becoming known as the Spice Routes.

These vast networks carried more than just merchandise and precious commodities however: the constant movement and mixing of populations also brought about the transmission of knowledge, ideas, cultures and beliefs, which had a profound impact on the history and civilizations of the Eurasian peoples.

Weiyang Palace - Chinese History - Chinese Architecture

Built in 200 BC at the request of Han Gaozu, under the supervision of his prime minister Xiao He, it served as the administrative centre and imperial residence of the Western Han Dynasty, as well as the Western Jin dynasty and several other regimes during the Northern and Southern Dynasties. The palace survived until the Tang dynasty when it was burnt down by marauding invaders en route to Tang Chang'an. This is the largest palace ever built on Earth, covering 4.8 km2 (1,200 acres), which is 6.7 times the size of the current Forbidden City, or 11 times the size of the Vatican City.

Today it is located in an open field and nothing remains of the former palace. 陕西这6处别有风情的古遗迹,串起了丝绸之路上最辉煌的时光!-搜狐旅游!!! Infobase Learning - Login. 专家:丝绸之路与西安的历史渊源 - 中文国际. Silk Road Timeline.

Silk Road Trade: History Of Gunpowder.

Silk Road Trade: History Of Gunpowder

While its primary function was to bring highly-prized silken threads and cloth from the Orient to Europe and North Africa, many other exotic goods would follow those same paths through the Himalayas, including one weapon which would change not only the way war would be waged, but bring about an entire new way of life. Gunpowder, known as "Black Powder" or "Saracen Powder" to the people of Medieval Europe, is generally thought to have originated in China, where explosive grenades, bombs, and rockets were already in widespread use by 1000 CE. Because it is a mixture of sulfur, charcoal, and saltpeter (potassium nitrate), gunpowder must be mechanically, and very carefully, mixed. Highly sensitive to sparks, it is a very delicate mixture, which often led to explosions and death because of careless handling of the ingredients.
