Now we will tell you about China’s some of Tang China’s Trade and the silk road, china’s main trade route to other countries.
The Silk Road ( in red) was a group of mountain ranges that made a road so people of Tang China could pass through and get to other countries so they could import and export products.
People of the Tang Dynasty used grasslands to grow crops so they could trade them to other countries. This is one of the main reasons why Tang china had such a good trade system.

Tang China’s main trading items were silk, perfume, and spices, but China also traded other things, like machinery, iron, steel, mineral fuels, oil, and equipment.
China’s geographic features were use as natural barriers. The barrier were seas, rivers,mountains,and deserts.The seas help them by making routes to get food. The Taklimakan desert was called the sea of death because of its boiling hot days, poisonous snakes, shortage of water. The Himalayan mountains were barriers because they were rugged.The rivers were needed for water.
Archeologists have found many artifacts from the Tang dynasty. Cups, pots, and many other items were found.
After Months of research, here is the conclusion that we came up with.
Because of the many trade items, such as crops and silk, Tang China flourished in the industrial world. Geographic impacts on China greatly affected it’s trade. Fields for farming and planting, many natural resources to make things out of, and a great trade route to export products may have made china the industrial engine of the world.
