Silk route, 200 BC and Information Route 2000 AD .


The red route is the land route and blue, the sea route..

Interesting to know the parts of the world which had some semblance of trade and development were in Asia, North  and East of Africa and South Europe, around 200 BC.

Extending for 6500 kms and spread over the Eurasian African landmass, the route was the main trade route for all goods and cultural trade in the ancient world .. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silk_Road
