Hello, I’m Mubin. A big welcome to you! I currently study Philosophy, Politics and Economics and I’m drawn to Eurasian history because it offers so much to the modern day reader. The Silk Road was a precursor to globalisation; not only exchanging goods, but connecting people and ideas. This blog will bring you snapshots of the economies, ideations and narratives which shaped the vibrant pasts of those who traded, travelled and lived along this route.
