  • The Silk Road was created to open up trade routs. It was created by the Han soliders expansion. The Han emporers misssion was to creat an allinace with china. Chinese and the romans both created amazing things these were usually trading items.

  • Traveling the Eastern Silk RoadSeveral dangers faced traders crossing the Taklimakan Desert. Bandits often attacked travelers on the northern route between Dunhuang and Kucha. Throughout the desert, sudden sandstorms sometimes buried travelers in sand. Mirages may have lured travelers off the main path to their deaths. To protect themselves before entering the desert, travelers often formed long caravans of camels.
  • #4
  • Traveling the Western Silk Road The journey west from Kashgar began with a difficult trek across the Pamir (pah-meer) Mountains. Some of these mountain peaks rose over twenty thousand feet. Travelers often experienced headaches, dizziness, and ringing in the ears caused by a lack of oxygen in the thin air of the high mountains.Many of the mountain passes were narrow and dangerous. Along this part of the route, sometimes called the “trail of bones,” animals and people often died. Pack animals such as donkeys slipped off the narrow trails and tumbled over cliffs. Sometimes, traders unloaded their animals and hand-carried the goods through the passes.
  • #5
  • knowledge—as well as goods—spread from one culture to another.For example, China and Rome did not merely trade new products with each other. In time, they learned how to make these products for themselves. By 500 C.E., the Chinese had learned how to make glass. About the same time, the West had learned how to produce silk. Such cultural diffusion occurs in many cultures, past and present, and in many different ways.
