This program engages students to consider the many contributions to math, medicine, science and technology pioneered in Central Eurasia during the period known as the "middle ages."
At the time, the silk road did more than just link Europe to Central Asia and other parts of the world - it brought Europeans many inventions and scientific breakthroughs from the far corners of the Islamic world. Many of remain important even today.

4. We end with a discussion of some of the factors in this innovation 'boom' and how the Golden Age of Islam relates to the Islamic world today.
