The Ancient Silk Road – East meets West
A talk by Susie Brooks
For more than two millenia merchants have travelled both west and east to trade their wares with those from far away lands, crossing some of the most challenging terrain in the world. Cultural exchanges inevitably followed as the trade routes expanded. Travel the route with Susie Brooks as she presents a colourful picture of life in those days drawn from her studies as a guide/lecturer in the National Museum of Singapore.
