    Zhang Qian

    138 BC

    Emperor Wu of Han sent Zhang Qian to negotiate an alliance with Yuexhi against the Xiongnu. Unfortunately, he was captured by the Xiongnu, who detained him for ten. After his second escape, he returned to China with detailed reports which showed that sophisticated civilizations existed to the West, with which China could advantageously develop relations.

    Armed with information from his initial travels, Zhang Qian set off on a second trip westward for the specific purpose of establishing trade and economic relationships with the people he encountered previously. The influx of Chinese goods westwards and western goods into China changed the economies and cultural influences of all the trading partners. It influenced trends in art/design, valuable/prestige goods and various forms of technology.

    China Meets Rome


    Chinese military ambassador Gan Ying was sent west by the Chinese General Ban Chao to explore a mysterious empire to the west whose power was said to rival that of China.  Gan Ying’s journey is the first well documented and proven attempt at Chinese-Roman contact.
    The first official contact between Rome and China occurred in 166 AC when Chinese records show that envoys from the Roman Empire sent by Emperor Marcus Aurelius visited the court of the Han Emperor. Intercontinental trade and communication became regular, and blossomed on an unprecedented scale.

His two travel diaries, “Account of Buddhism sent from the South Seas” and “Buddhist Monk's Pilgrimage of the Tang Dynasty”, described his adventurous journey to Srivijaya and India, reporting on the society of India, the lifestyles of various local peoples, and more.

    1. Jan 1877

    German geographer and traveller, Ferdinand von Richthofen coined the trade routes as 'Seidenstrassen' (silk routes / silk roads). His work appeared at Berlin in 1877-85 under the title of China: Ergebnisse eigener Reisen und darauf gegründeter Studien. In this standard work, the author deals not only with geology but with every subject necessary to a general geographical treatise. He was appointed professor of Geology at the University of Bonn beginning in 1875, but being fully occupied with his work in China he did not take up professorial duties until 1879.
