History Hit presents: Understanding the ancient Silk Roads with Peter Frankopan

Saturday 27 January 2018, 10.30 - 17.00
BP Lecture Theatre
£28, Members/concessions £20

The region known throughout history as the Silk Road (or more correctly Roads) is obscure to many in the English-speaking world. Yet this is where civilisation itself began, where the world's great religions were born and took root.

The Silk Roads were no exotic series of connections, but networks that linked continents and oceans together. Along them flowed ideas, goods, disease and death. This was where empires were won and lost.

This one-day study day, presented in collaboration with History Hit Live and programmed with historian Peter Frankopan, will present the vast history of the ancient Silk Roads in an accessible way, and is open to all.
