2019 CROSSING THE ANCIENT SILK ROAD: CHINA AND CENTRAL ASIA

A 19 day journey upon which we will be accompanied by Dr Jamie Greenbaum who is currently researching the history of early Chinese utopias and also a history of the early State of Yan (the area
around and to the north of present-day Beijing). He has travelled widely in China and lectured on both Ancient and Contemporary China. As well as providing informal instruction throughout the trip, Dr Greenbaum will give a number of lectures about the history of the Silk Road. Since 2003, he has led ten very successful Silk Road expeditions for Distant Horizons. Comments from those who have travelled with Dr Greenbaum on these journeys are given at the end of this itinerary.
