In this episode, we trek along the dusty trails of the famed Silk Road. We meet some of the people traipsing this network, hitch a ride on a merchant’s camel, pass by some pilgrims, and meet a young religious faith called Buddhism. And we’ll look at a lot of ceramics. Ceramics from China’s Jin, Tang, Yuan, and Ming dynasties.
