The Silk Road was a network of trading routes that connected a number of different regions in the ancient world, stretching over four thousand miles from China, through India and Asia Minor and through Mesopotamia and the African continent, all the way to Greece, Rome and Britain. These routes were formally established by the Han dynasty of China in 130 BCE and although it was a number of different trading routes, the name the Silk Road has always been favoured. Despite its name, not only silk travelled along these routes, but many other goods, too!
