Effects on the Modern Day World
Both the silk road and the African Gold-Salt Trade influenced the modern day world in many ways. They were two of the biggest trade routes in history. The Gold-Salt trade introduced many new ways to use these products beneficially, as a lot of them are still used today. The silk Road gave the people in the Asian continent brand new ideas on how to use silk like making clothes. We still use many of the ideas introduced today. Without these trades, some of these places might not have survived, which greatly impact our world today.
