thin spice

The Silk Road  – PSIL (6 sessions)

When spices were more precious than diamonds, trade across Asia in the Middle Ages didn’t just bring food, but also ideas, mathematics and philosophies.  We explore why the Silk Road was so important,  as we investigate the different goods that were traded, including silk, teas, salt, sugar, porcelain, spices and cotton.

Subjects: history, business, economics, philosophy, design and inventions
