The Ancient Silk Road: A Journey Across Central Asia
In this photographic lecture, we explore the historic cities of the Silk Road--including Samarqand, Bukhara and Kashgar--places that flourished for over 1,000 years along the trading routes that connected across 5,000 miles between central China and Istanbul at the doorstep of Europe. The presentation will focus on the legacies of the Silk Road trade on these places, including architecture, religion, language, ceremonies
and food. Photography will highlight the travels of the lecturer as he followed the caravan routes of the Silk Road traders threaded over high passes through rugged, snowy mountain ranges and across large and forbidding deserts. Ample time will be allotted for questions. Limited to 18.
