Marco Polo and the Silk Road

Races: The Reopening of The Silk Road helped spark the renaissance because with all the trade reopening soldiers weren't protecting the travelers and business started again. They made the road safer for people passing by . It states “Among these traders were a remarkable man from Venice named Marco Polo and his family.” (Holt300)
