Name the route which linked Asia with Europe and Northern Africa.

Answer :

Silk route

In the 8th century, silk was among the first goods to be transported from China in Asia to Europe and South Africa. Hence, the name 'Silk Route'. This eventually became a very important link to connect many countries in the pre-trade era. Soon, textiles and spices also began to be traded from India and South Asia. Also, precious metals such as gold and silver were imported from Europe to Asia. This route helped not only for the trade of goods but also for the exchange of cultural ideas and knowledge. Many Christian and Muslim scholars travelled through this route. Later, Buddhism also spread in the same manner.
