The Silk Road is surely one of the oldest routes of international trade in the world. There was no single "Silk Road," but rather hundreds of old routes and scores of trading posts that formed a vibrant overland trade network between China, Central Asia, and Europe. It is through the Silk Road that the old Chinese civilization got to be known to the world and the outside world came to understand ancient Chinese life.
