This title is suitable for children of ages 9 to 12 years. Shedding light on a legendary passage between the Mediterranean Sea and China, this overview outlines the history, geography, and people of the Silk Road region. Spanning from Roman times ...
until the Age of Exploration, this noteworthy route helped spread different forms of technology, various cultural traditions, and even academic theories across two continents and beyond. The merchants, conquerors, pilgrims, and diplomats who set out on the fabled route in search of wealth, power, and knowledge - including Marco Polo himself - are also documented, illustrating the vast deserts, towering mountain peaks, warring tribes, and marauding bandits they endured. Through entertaining activities that use everyday materials, this guide enables children to re-create the clothes and foods of the nomadic tribes and city dwellers who made their homes along the historical Silk Road.
