Product Description
During the Han Dynasty (220 B.C.E.-200 C.E.) a multitude of factors led to the exchange of luxury items over a long distance. The first development was the availability of pack animals such as camels to carry goods over long distances through geographic barriers. The second was a growing demand for goods and resources that were not locally available. Perhaps some of the highest demanded items were the spices that originated in the eastern orient. To satisfy the appetites of people everywhere, merchants built business partnerships to deliver unique spices all over the world through the “Silk Road.” Little did these merchants know but they were creating a world-wide trading network that would grow into the unstoppable force of globalization. One could argue that modern globalization was caused by nothing more than the human stomach’s desire for spices such as peppercorns, cassia, cinnamon, tumeric, nutmeg, vanilla, cumin, paprika, ginger, and food products such salt, coffee, tea, rhubarb, dates, sugar, kola nuts, and “curry.”
