Ancient Turmeric and Ginger

Arthur Huxley - 18-06-2021

On this day around 2000 years ago a "Caravan" loaded with Turmeric and Ginger, the spice "gold" at the time, left Southern India bound for Rome.

The "Caravan" travelled by primitive boat to the North Indian port of.......then travelling across.... braving and defending bandit attacks they arrived in.......and departed on a further sea voyage the Persian Gulf and the markets of Alexandria in........

Continuing this epic journey, the "Caravan" then made another sea vouge across the Mediterranean Sea to Sicily then travelled up the Italian.....coast and on to Rome. 

An awesome spice road journey with no doubt, great reward !
