About the Silk Roads Introduction Human beings have always moved from place to place and traded with their neighbours, exchanging goods, skills and ideas. Throughout history, Eurasia was criss-crossed with communication routes and paths of trade, which gradually linked up to form what are known today as the Silk Roads; routes across both land and sea, along which silk and many other goods were exchanged between people from across the world. Maritime routes were an important part of this network, linking East and West by sea, and were used for the trade of spices in particular, thus becoming known as the Spice Routes. These vast networks carried more than just merchandise and precious commodities however: Travellers along the Silk Roads were attracted not only by trade but also by the intellectual and cultural exchange that was taking place in cities along the Silk Roads, many of which developed into hubs of culture and learning. Science, arts and literature, as well as crafts and technologies were thus shared and disseminated into societies along the lengths of these routes, and in this way, languages, religions and cultures developed and influenced each other. Silk Production and the Silk Trade Silk is a textile of ancient Chinese origin, woven from the protein fibre produced by the silkworm to make its cocoon, and was developed, according to Chinese tradition, sometime around the year 2, BC. Regarded as an extremely high value product, it was reserved for the exclusive usage of the Chinese imperial court for the making of cloths, drapes, banners, and other items of prestige. Its production was kept a fiercely guarded secret within China for some 3, years, with imperial decrees sentencing to death anyone who revealed to a foreigner the process of its production. Tombs in the Hubei province dating from the 4th and 3rd centuries BC contain outstanding examples of silk work, including brocade, gauze and embroidered silk, and the first complete silk garments.

Piano Odyssey is out and has had some really nice feedback which is so pleasing after all the hard work that went in to producing it from so many people. As well as the tour, there has been a lot of promotion to do, which I really enjoy. What a great programme to do. They chose three bear stories for me because of my love of Moon Bears so that made the day even more special. October did take its health toll though as it was full on 20 hour days including thousands of miles of driving and little sleep and I succumbed to a really nasty viral infection that knocked me flat.

They are awaiting trial, along with the three Germans in absentia on the 14th September at the Giza Criminal Court. If this accusation is true, then all the accused have committed a heinous crime against our world heritage, because the Great Pyramid, being the last surviving wonder of the ancient world, is undeniably the most sacred of monuments from antiquity.
Because the Great Pyramid is totally devoid of contemporary official inscriptions, inside or outside, and therefore totally anonymous, this cartouche is the linchpin that links it to Khufu. But is it true? Why are the Egyptian authorities so convinced of this?

The list of Archer’s possible fathers include Nikolai Jakov , Len Trexler , and Buddy Rich , as well as an unnamed young man who was gunned down in the streets of Italy and had “blue eyes, full lips, and thick wavy hair”.

There are five distinct physiographic regions of Vermont. The geological pressures that created those peaks remain evident as the Champlain Thrust , running north—south to the west of the mountains now the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. It is an example of geological fault thrusting where bedrock is pushed over the newer rock formation. As a result of tectonic formation, Vermont east of the Green Mountains tends to be formed from rocks produced in the Silurian and Devonian periods.
Western Vermont mainly from the older Pre-Cambrian and Cambrian material. It was one of the first tropical reefs. It is the site of the limestone Fisk Quarry, which contains a collection of ancient marine fossils such as stromatoporoids that date back to million years ago. It is believed that at one point, Vermont was connected to Africa Pangaea and the fossils found and the rock formations found on the coasts in both Africa and America are further evidence of the Pangaea theory.
