This is a teaching resource about the cultural, economic and artistic exchanges promoted by the Silk Roads in China. It gives step-by-step advice to teachers about how their students could be encouraged to make personal literary responses to images of artefacts from a hyperlinked online exhibition, 'Monks and merchants: Silk Road treasures from northwest China, Gansu and Ningxia, 4th to 7th century'. The online exhibition has ten sections, including Heavenly horses and Merchants and currencies. Each section includes several artefacts and information about their historical context.
