Silk Road Forum 2017

When: 1:30-5:00 pm, April 2, 2017, Sunday,

Location: McCormick Hall, Room 101, Princeton University

Two lectures with responses and public discussion

The overland Silk Road may have been opened in ancient times, the maritime route may have developed long before the Song dynasty, and political and military interests may have been stronger than economic ones. This talk introduces recent discoveries in Buddhist archaeology in Gansu province against this historical background.
