Coffee lecture: The Silk Roads
With Dr Julian Droogan
For over 2000 years the Silk Roads linked the Mediterranean world with the kingdoms of Central Asia and far China, creating one of the great cultural melting pots of the ancient world. Dr Julian Droogan presents a journey through this most dazzling part of the globe.
