Quiz: Can You Name the Countries Along the Silk Road?

The Silk Road was more than one single road and even existed at sea. It was a series of trade routes that opened up the lucrative trade in silk and other merchandise of the Eastern World to the Western World. It began as far back as 100 to 200 BC, with precursors like the Royal Road of the Persian Empire dating back even further. Its purpose was to further trade, to make money, and to connect the world and create opportunities in numerous countries — not just for trade but for alliances, for political expansion, for exploitation, for learning, and for pretty much any other reason you could imagine. Beyond silk, things like gunpowder, spices, tea, technology, philosophy and religion made their way along this legendary road across hundreds of years of progress as empires rose and fell. The Silk Road crossed through more countries than most people think. It wasn't just a straight shot from China to England by any means. There were many stops along the way, and if you know history, then you must know more than a few of those stops. But will that be enough to answer all the questions in this quiz correctly? Take the quiz and head on a journey to see how many you can identify!
