  • The Silk Road
  • We are about to enter the Easter silk road.
  • The Han empire made the silk road.  They made the silk road so the military campaigns of the Han drove back nomadic peoples in northwestern China,opening up trade routes to the west.
  • Today I am going to be traveling on the silk road to spread Buddhist beliefs.  You may come along.
  • The silk road is called the silk road because Silk is the Chinese most valued product.  A fact is that Zang Quian is sometimes called the father of the Silk road.
  • Only the Chinese could know how to make silk.  If a Chinese person told someone that was not Chinese how to make silk they would be punished maybe even by death.
  • No thanks
  • In this area we may see people and can teach them about Buddhist beliefs.
  • The Romans did not know how to make silk so they came up with their own kind of silk.  It was called glassware.  Just as the Romans have never had silk the Chinese never have had glassware.
  • Would you like some silk cloths
  • The silk road is not just one continuous road.  The eastern silk road connects to Luoyang and Kashar,in the western part of the Taklimakan desert.
  • We are now on the eastern silk road.
  • The eastern silk road is protected by the great wall of china to the north.   There are two ways you can go on this part of the silk road.  You can go north that is the way we are going.  Or you can go souththern and on that route.
  • Travels will often face bandits and sometimes sandstorms.  Often times travlers will form caravns of camels to protect them selves.
  • Merchants will sell and carry the things they are selling.  To be able for something to travel with them it has to be easy to carry and valuable so they can make a profit.
