Spice Routes

The Spice Routes, also known as Maritime Silk Roads, is the name given to the network of sea routes that link the East with the West.
From our very earliest history, people have travelled the Spice Routes. These journeys were not undertaken purely in the spirit of adventure - the driving force behind them was trade. Since ancient times, trade has had an important role in human life.
In the case of the Spice Routes the links were formed by traders buying and selling goods from port to port.
Perhaps it was their strangeness and rarity that led great medicinal and spiritual values to be attributed to them.
The profits to be made from spices were considerable. They were small and dried, and consequently could be transported easily. The wealth of the spice trade brought great power and influence and, over the centuries, bloody battles were fought to win control of it and the routes along which it took place.
