Advantages

Able to obtain scarce resources by traveling to other countries.

Able to return home with new ideas and goods from different cultures.

Able to obtain scarce resources by traveling even further to other countries.

Overland Trade

Risk

Wild animals and armed robbers are a threat to the traders and the livestock.


Chapter eight

Advantages

Able to obtain scarce resources by traveling even further to other countries.

Able to return home with new ideas and goods from different cultures.

If you decide to build a port, ships will stop there and trade with the local people. This will improve the economy of your country.

Risk

Pirates may attack and rob ships at sea

Chapter eight

Source A: An excerpt from an Indian history book about the Chola Empire

Under his son Rajendra Chola I, the dynasty became a military, economic and cultural power in South Asia and Southeast Asia. Its power spread to the eastern world by the expedition to the Ganges which Rajendra Chola I undertook, by overthrowing the empire of Srivijaya through naval wars and by sending ambassadors repeatedly to China. He sent a victorious expedition to North India and defeated the Pala ruler of Pataliputra, Mahipala.

Study Source A. What can Source A tell you about the contact and interaction of the Chola empire in the 10th century CE?


Chapter eight

Source A tells me :

1.) The Chola empire established contact and interaction with other civilisations through territorial expansion.

Evidence: ‘overthrowing the empire of Srivijaya through naval wars’ and ‘defeated the Pala ruler of Pataliputra, Mahipala’.

2.) Trade was also a form of contact and interaction with other civilisations.

Evidence: ‘military, economic, and cultural power in South Asia and Southeast Asia’ and ‘by sending ambassadors repeatedly to China’.

This suggests that the Chola empire had great influence in the maritime sea routes in Southeast Asia.

The empire also sent ambassadors to China and was likely to pay tribute to China in order to trade with China freely.

Chapter eight

Pearls, corals and timber were found near the Indus Valley.

In other parts of India, copper tools and cotton cloth from the Indus Valley were found.

Q: What does this show?


Chapter eight

Overland Trade in India

1) Archaeologists have found evidence that the Indus Valley Civilisation traded with other parts of India, exchanging their copper tools and cotton textiles for pearls, coral, or hardwood.

2.) Indus people traded with other people from the Indian subcontinent.

Chapter 8 Slide 6


Chapter eight

2.) No proper roads

Overland trade was dangerous as traders had to endure rough and rocky roads, and threats from wild animals as well as robbers.

Q: What did traders do?


Chapter eight

2. No proper roads

They learned to band together in groups of 500 men in order to be able to protect themselves as they travelled along the rough roads.


Chapter eight

2.) No proper roads

By the Mauryan Dynasty(c332-185BCE), there was an extensive network of trade routes between India and the Middle East, and the Mauryans and Guptas ensured that the roads were well-maintained for the comfort of the traders.


Chapter eight

The town of Jaisalmer

2.) No proper roads

Because of the large number of traders using the protected routes, the towns along the way prospered (e.g.: Jaisalmer), as overland trade continued in the 18th century CE.

Look at pg. 127 fig 8.2 of your textbook. Why do you think Jaisalmer was surrounded by such walls? What can you infer about the town and its people from this?


Chapter eight

Overland Trade in India

  • The Indus people traded with other parts of India, but the routes were difficult and dangerous.

  • By the Mauryan period, proper roads covered the whole of India; there were also overland routes between India and the Middle East.

  • Towns along overland routes grew and prospered.

Mesopotamian seal

Indus seal

Q: What common features do you see?

Source A: Seal from Mesopotamian (Present day Iran)

Source B: Seal from Indus Valley


Chapter eight

Q: What can you infer from this source about the route they took for maritime trade? Look at the map on page 126 (fig 8.1)

From Source C: A BBC website on trading in the Indus Valley civilisation.

Sargon of Akkad (2334 to 2279 BC) was a king in Mesopotamia. This was one of the first ancient civilisations.

Sargon's scribes kept written records of ships from other lands. So we learn that the Mesopotamians bought gold, copper and jewellery from 'Meluhha'. Was Meluhha the Mesopotamian name for the Indus civilisation? Or was it the Indus Valley people's own name for their land?

To reach Mesopotamia, Indus ships sailed west. They probably kept close to land. Bits of old Indus pottery found on beaches in Oman, in the Gulf, came from storage jars left behind by traders.

Chapter eight

Maritime Trade in India

  • 1.) Indus people used sail boats to travel along the coastlines of Persia (Iran), Arabia and India

  • An ancient port was found near the Indus Valley, with docks for ships to load and unload their goods.

  • Seals from Indus Valley were found in Mesopotamia (present day Iraq)

  • Seals from Mesopotamia were found in Indus Valley sites

  • Indus people might have borrowed the idea of using seals to mark goods from Mesopotamians

Maritime Trade in India

2.) Sea routes began around 1 CE

Seasonal monsoon patterns of the Indian Ocean were discovered by Greek ship captain Hippalus

  • Group activity

  • You are to fill in, with the help of your textbook, the answers to the questions.

  • Join the pieces together in a map.

  • Trace out the route taken by Indian traders.

Chapter 8 Slide 9


Chapter eight

Maritime Trade in India

3a.) Sea travel aided by monsoon winds

  • From April to October : Southwest Monsoons propel ships from East Africa, Arabia and the Persian Gulf to India

  • From November to March: NE monsoons carry the ships back to their home ports.

Chapter 8 Slide 8


Chapter eight

Maritime Trade in India

3b.) Sailors later discovered similar wind patterns in the Bay of Bengal and the South China Sea, which greatly enhance trade between India and China.

  • The journey between India and China could not be completed in a single monsoon season.

Chapter 8 Slide 8


Chapter eight

Q: How would maritime trade have affected Southeast Asia?

3b.) Sailors later discovered similar wind patterns in the Bay of Bengal and the South China Sea, which greatly enhance trade between India and China.

  • The journey between India and China could not be completed in a single monsoon season.

  • SEA ports prospered as the ships had to stop there. They traded with Southeast Asian traders as well.

Maritime Trade in India

4.) Maritime trade increased greatly between the Roman Empire, India, Southeast Asia and China.

Q: What problems would the traders encounter while travelling across the seas?

Chapter 8 Slide 8


Chapter eight

Maritime Trade in India

4.) Maritime trade increased greatly between the Roman Empire, India, Southeast Asia and China.

In 1025 CE, King Rajendra of the Chola Dynasty sent a fleet of armed ships to Sumatra, Myanmar and the Malay Peninsula in order to keep the ships safe from pirates.

Chapter 8 Slide 8


Chapter eight

Maritime Trade in India

The Indus people sailed along the coast of Persia to trade with the people of Mesopotamia.

The Indus people may have borrowed the idea of using seals to mark ownership from the Mesopotamians.

The monsoon patterns allowed Indian maritime trade to expand to Rome, China and Southeast Asia.

The problem of piracy forced some rulers to send naval expeditions to suppress piracy.

Chapter 8 Slide 8


Chapter eight

Territorial Expansion in India

  • Aryans moved into Ganges Plains c. 1500 BCE

  • Consequence: Sanskrit language and culture gradually spread to other parts of India

Chapter 8 Slide 10


Chapter eight

  • Indus Valley conquered by Alexander the Great in 326 BCE

  • Consequences:

  • Chaos and disorder in northern India allowed Chandragupta to establish rule

  • Direct trade contact between India and the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea was established

Chapter 8 Slide 11


Chapter eight

Diplomacy

  • Diplomatic relations with kingdoms and empires outside India

  • E.g. Greek Ambassador named Megasthenes stationed at Pataliputra, capital of the Gupta empire
