The Silk Road Infrastructure D.18.12.28

27 Dec

Trade itself was conducted in stages, and merchants typically did not go from one end of the route to the other with their goods.
Those in power were responsible for the security of their sections of the route that fell within their boundaries.
The merchants would travel a section of the Silk Road – trade and then return. This allowed the new merchant to continue the route to the next merchant who would do the same.
In fact, the route on the Silk road was broken down in imaginary sections where as a progression goods were handed on to the next merchant and so on.
