Spices and other rare commodities from places like Oman, have been traded since time immemorial; these goods brought the world together in important ways. This lecture looks at some of that long history, which centers around the Indian Ocean, and which connected Europe and Asia writ-large in ever-widening orbits of exchange. A broad-angled view of this commerce teaches us how the globe became part of a common conversation over the course of the centuries.
