The Silk Road to South Asia through Bangladesh

 South Asia Without Borders Seminar March 24, 2015
Harvard South Asia Institute
Hasna MoududSAI Research Affiliate; Former Visiting Fellow, Ash Center, Harvard Kennedy School
Chair: Roderick MacFarquhar, Leroy B. Williams Research Professor of History and Political Science
This talk examines the Tea Horse Road, from Yunnan tea country that travels through Tibet, India, Myanmar, and Bangladesh, which was once one of the oldest and major trade routes, but is now forgotten. The recent excavations in Bangladesh, and evidence from archaeological, iconography and literary sources, indicate a closer and greater exchange between China and South Asia. Moudud speaks about her time traveling through the Silk Road.
