While the Chinese silk trade played a minor role in the Chinese economy, it did increase the number of foreign merchants present in China under the Han Dynasty, exposing both the Chinese and visitors to their country to different cultures and religions. In fact, Buddhism spread from India to China because of trade along the Silk Route, similar to the way Islam spread along trans-Saharan routes in medieval West Africa.” – The Silk Road Linking Europe and Asia through trade The silk road – cultural effects

11 The Silk ROAD – Marco Polo
“Marco Polo ( ), is probably the most famous Westerner traveled on the Silk Road. He excelled all the other travelers in his determination, his writing, and his influence. His journey through Asia lasted 24 years. He reached further than any of his predecessors, beyond Mongolia to China. He became a confidant of Kublai Khan ( ). He traveled the whole of China and returned to tell the tale, which became the greatest travelogue.” – Marco Polo and his travels The Silk ROAD – Marco Polo

12 Origins of the game Marco Polo
"When a man is riding through this desert by night and for some reason -falling asleep or anything else -he gets separated from his companions and wants to rejoin them, he hears spirit voices talking to him as if they were his companions, sometimes even calling him by name. Often these voices lure him away from the path and he never finds it again, and many travelers have got lost and died because of this. Sometimes in the night travelers hear a noise like the clatter of a great company of riders away from the road; if they believe that these are some of their own company and head for the noise, they find themselves in deep trouble when daylight comes and they realize their mistake. There were some who, in crossing the desert, have been a host of men coming towards them and, suspecting that they were robbers, returning, they have gone hopelessly astray....Even by daylight men hear these spirit voices, and often you fancy you are listening to the strains of many instruments, especially drums, and the clash of arms. For this reason bands of travelers make a point of keeping very close together. Before they go to sleep they set up a sign pointing in the direction in which they have to travel, and round the necks of all their beasts they fasten little bells, so that by listening to the sound they may prevent them from straying off the path." ---- Marco Polo, Travels Origins of the game Marco Polo

13 Origins of the game Marco Polo
“During journey Marco fell asleep on horse. Horse slowed eventually stopped, he fell far behind, his father and uncle traveled on unaware. When he awoke it was dark he had no clue where his father was, He called out "Polo" (father's title) and his father called back "Marco" Until reunited.” “It came from the fact that many people thought that when Marco Polo didn't know where he was going when he traveled. So just like what people thought about Marco Polo not knowing where he was going the same think apples to the person with their eyes closed in the game.” Create your own answer Origins of the game Marco Polo
