Connecting the old world through trade...

Thanks to modern technology, a globalized exchange of goods and ideas can take place at the click of a button. But what was it like 2,000 years ago? Shannon Harris Castelo traces the history of the 5,000-mile Silk Road, and its network of multiple routes built through the universal language of trade, and major global agreements, one transaction at a time.
