Caravans and Ancient Puzzles

 Welcome to my blog! I will be writing about many fascinating historical events, ideas and stories which dotted the the silk roads and beyond. In doing so, I hope to unravel how people communicated and maintained trust when journeys between regions could take months. For instance, how could a merchant from Mughal India ensure his cloth would reach its destination in Astrakhan, Russia?

I hope you enjoy my findings.
