The Silk Road was a complex interlocking and overlapping network of land routes paralleled or supplanted here and there by sea passages. Through this network moved all manner of goods, hosts of peoples, beasts of burden, ideas, and whole systems of belief. Join Dr. Joseph Greene, Deputy Director and Curator of the Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East, as he backtracks along the Silk Road from west to east, pausing to consider how the Near East pivots gradually but perceptibly toward Asia.
