Unesco's Silk Road

Title

Unesco's Silk Road

Subject

Cultural Map

Description

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) has gone to great lengths to extoll the cultural value of the Silk Road. This "Cultural Heritage of the Silk Road on the Map" casts the "Silk Road" as having influence over a massive geographic territory inclusive of Africa, Asia, and Europe.

The map is a collaborative platform, developed with the support of the governments of Kazakhstan, Germany, Oman and Azerbaijan, and funding provided by the Chinese Tang West Market Cultural Industry Investment Group -- just one marker of the diverse array of private and public entities engaged in the production of cultural knowledge related to the Silk Road.
