Silk Road

PROMPT: Despite the difficulties of the Silk Road, many people spent a good deal of their lives engaged in business, war, or travel along its routes. For this topic, I would like you to analyze the reasons that people were drawn to the Silk Road. What were some reasons that people traveled it, traded on it, or lived on it? Discuss three examples, drawn from Whitfield’s book, of reasons that the Silk Road had such a significant influence on those who lived in China and Central Asia during this period. Your paper must also briefly address how the reasons for traveling or living on the Silk Road pertaining to characters in Whitfield’s book compare to the reasons that it is being used today, as described in the “Hauling New Treasures Along the Old Silk Road” article.Please use the 8 sources attached below and consider this link as a source.
