Chinese commerce and trade played an interesting and vital role in the spread of Chinese culture.The Silk Road connected China with Asian and European countries. “ It is hard to overstate theimportance of The Silk Road on history.” (National Geographic, 2022) China's great inventionsnot only help revolutionize China but also Europe. The Chinese introduced products like silk,paper making, printing, gun powder, compass, religion and writing. The silk from China wasused to dress royalty in Europe. Gunpowder changed war drastically. New weapons wereproduced with gun powder. Its power was a well known secret that the Chinese tried to keep butwere not able to keep to themselves as it unfortunately for them at least leaked.I can not stress how the development of the compass was a vital tool for the birth of navigation.This invention was not intended for navigating but in the end it was changed by Europeanswhich later helped with the Age of Exploration. This allowed the Conquistadors to navigatethrough new lands ultimately conquering the Aztec or just finding better trade routes for goods.
