Summary
This program featuring Michael Wood takes viewers to the India of the early centuries AD, a time that saw Indian civilization grow into a major participant in the first global economy as trade enriched it through contact and exchange. The rediscovered site of Rome's most significant trading port in India and a trip to Madurai, the ancient capital of South India, offer insights into the spice trade, while a journey to Merv, in the desert of Turkmenistan, helps illustrate how North India was opened up to the world by merchant caravans using the Silk Road between China and the West
