Art and Architecture along the Silk Road - Cawley Hall, Luston HR6 0DS

Angela Smith

Wednesday 9th November 2022

This study day will develop our understanding of the phenomenon of the Silk Road and its impact on the art and architecture of the various cultures and peoples across Asia in the first millennium. 

The Silk Road was a series of trade routes that linked the Far East with the West. The routes began to develop in the 1st century BC and were actively used by merchants for more than a thousand years. An exploration of the Silk Road is illustrated with examples of the art and architecture created along its routes and first millennium cultural influences including those of Persia, Islam, Ferghana Valley, India, China, South-East Asia and Japan.
