Asian Art Museum Virtual Art Talk - The Silk Road: Globalization in the Ancient World

Saturday, December 11, 2021

Travel the ancient routes that provided goods, technologies, and ideas to countries and cultures from the Mediterranean to the Pacific. Before jet planes and smartphones, militia, merchants, monks, and pilgrims spent months, even years, traveling over perilous land routes to carry luxury goods and new ideas thousands of miles across civilizations. Luxury commodities such as silk, porcelain, paper, tea, jade, amber, spices, ivory, gunpowder, gold, and silver were carried across overland and sea trade routes known as the Silk Road. Religions and ideas, technologies and innovations also spread along these trade routes in all directions. Please note that closed captioning will be available for this virtual event.
