This unit explores how the movement of people, ideas, and material goods made pre-modern Asia one of the most exciting and vibrant regions of the world. Other topics covered include the 'silk road', religion and belief systems (indigenous beliefs, Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Daoism and Islam).
