Summary
Separated by vast and inhospitable distances, Europe and Eastern Asia began to interact in a meaningful way during the second century B.C.-thanks to a growing traffic in spices, fabrics, and other goods along what became known as the Silk Road. It was a collision of culture and tradition that changed the course of world history. Winding tens of thousands of miles between China and several Mediterranean countries, the route enabled an exchange of ideas among dramatically different civilizations. This program follows history's famed artery of global commerce and examines the many urban centers and ports of call it enriched-or, in some cases, endangered-over the centuries
