Marco Polo and the Silk Road
The reopening of the Silk Road helped spark the Renaissance. “Once the mongols came to power in China, merchants like Marco Polo began to use the Silk Road again. In China Marco Polo was welcomed by the mongol emperor. Marco Polo brought new things from Asia like coal. He spent 20 years living and traveling in Asia” (holt 299-300). This is stating that Marco Polo became good friends with the mongol emperor and brought new things from Asia back to his home land Europe. In conclusion, this is how the Silk Road sparked the renaissance.
