Course detail: OSH089 - The Silk Road: from Marco Polo to Mao
Marco Polo, the famous 13th-century trader from Venice, was one of the first Westerners to travel the Silk Road to China. We'll follow in his footsteps to explore the history and culture along this ancient trade route, including its reemergence in the 21st century as an important source of energy. Learn more about the peoples along the Silk Road, what they value, where they've been and possibly where they're going as revealed in their art, technology, belief systems and stories.
