How did this modest trade artery become the world's most famous cultural superhighway? Documents excavated along the Silk Routes allow us to see with needle-sharp precision who was moving along these trade routes and why. Merchants, envoys, refugees, missionaries, artists, and craftsmen all helped transmit the many ideas that traversed Eurasia in the first millennium CE.
