More Silk Roads

 Group Leader  Alan Freeland

The ancient trade routes connecting China, India, Central Asia and Europe were responsible for a huge exchange of people, ideas, technology, art and of course trade. Building on last year’s classes we will continue using Peter Frankopan’s Silk Roads books as our guide. We recap last year’s programme and focus more on the 17th & 18th centuries as well as on China’s latest initiatives. New members are very welcome.
