Silk Road Hunt VIII

The story of the Byzantine Empire from 476 AD to 1453 AD
By SebastianTiogar (Sebby)
Byzantium is an ancient city dating back to the golden age of Greece.  It was located where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Black Sea and the eastern portion of what we think of today as Europe, meets the western portion of what we think of as the middle east.  Thus it was a critical commercial hub with merchants from the east as well as those from the west coming to trade; also merchants from the south, notably Egypt, and merchants from the north (what would eventually be Russia).

During the age of the Roman Empire, it became their Eastern Capital, second only to Rome in importance.  When Alexandria fell, many of its riches, in the form of books on math, science (especially chemistry) and literature; art as well as jewels and precious metals, were brought to Byzantium by those fleeing the destruction of Alexandria. 
When Rome fell, many of its riches, including literature, science, mathematics, art, and so on, also arrived in Byzantium as people fled the invaders.  During the onslaught of the Huns, Mongols, Goths, Visigoths, and Vandals, Byzantium stood as a seemingly impregnable stronghold, keeping safe the treasures of the Roman, Greek, and Egyptian golden eras. 
For nearly 1000 years, Byzantium controlled all trade along the Silk Road.  Its markets teamed with peoples from all over the world; and boasted goods from every corner of the known world at that time... spices, silks, jewelry, art, books, -- it was all available in the markets of Byzantium.  Caravans left from Byzantium.  Caravans terminated their journeys in Byzantium.  Ships sallied in and out of its harbors.
As a result, Byzantine culture was truly a melting pot of all that was best in the ancient world.
