Although fundamentally economic in orientation, these trade networks spawned vast cultural, artistic and religious exchanges- these exchanges necessarily served as the underlying, yet often overlooked, inspiration for the creation of many of the world’s greatest cultural landmarks.During our travels, this big-picture overlay really helped us place civilizations into a global, historical framework.
