Silk Roads Programme

Through a generous donation, King’s has initiated a programme for the study of the history and culture of the Silk Road countries, societies, and cultures of Asia from the Western borders of China to the Mediterranean Sea, as well as their relationships with China in the East and Europe in the West. This broad programme of studies includes lectures, seminars and conferences, as well as graduate scholarships and Research Fellowships, which explore relationships and the movement of materials, knowledge, and technologies between China and the Mediterranean at any period in history up to the present day.
