In the beginning, perhaps has early as 2700BC, travellers would cross great distances over difficult and often harsh land routes to exchange goods, intellect and technology. Silk was one of the earliest prized commodities; hence the term “Silk Road”. As the trade routes extended, spices became highly sought after; many rare and expensive spices like cinnamon, cassia, cardamom, ginger, pepper, turmeric and salt were used for commerce. The Silk Road became an important route connecting Asia with the Mediterranean world, including North Africa and Europe, spanning over 7000 kilometers.
