TALK: The Silk Road: A New History

March 7, 2013 from 4:00pm

Valerie Hansen (History, Yale) Whenever we speak of the Silk Road, the mind’s eye conjures up a single merchant traveling on a camel laden with goods, most likely on his way to Rome. The discovery of multiple artifacts and excavated documents in northwest China allows us to revise this image. In fact, few people moving along the Silk Road were long-distance merchants.
