    In this paper I will discuss which trade routes were an essential part of globalization in the ancient world, thus including routes such as The Silk Road, The Grand Trunk Road, as well as Incense Road.

Due to the large surface area that this road covered, the goods that were being produced were able to spread further and therefore demand for certain materials such as silk, began to grow. This was important in not only spreading silk which could only be produced in certain areas, but as well as languages and religious messages (The silk road in world history, pg. 20). Author and…

    When thinking of a tree, it is easy to imagine a strong plant, established firmly into the soil, with a thick substantial trunk and vast outreaching branches. However, what does not typically come to mind is a scrawny seedling, with its new roots hardly ingrained into the soil. One with a toothpick of a trunk that is struggling to support itself. The fact of the matter is that every tremendous tree started as a measly sapling, but not every sapling is able to grow into a tree. The forest can be…

The rough, callous bark of the foreboding tree a dark hazel splattered with sections of sunken grooves. A shadow casts upon the intruding tree, darkening the bottom section of the once splendid trunk to a sinister shade of black. The upper top half on the trunk splintered, as if its own structure and size had betrayed…
