Summary

Summary

Setting out from the great walled city of Chang'an in China, home of the Terracotta Army, and running west through the Gansu corridor to Dunhuang, where it divided into two routes to avoid the dangerous Taklaman Desert, the Silk Road was not only an ancient trade route, but also an avenue of cultural and intellectual exchange.
