The Medieval Spice Trade

Event Navigation

spices_bio

According to the event organizers:

“Spices were the ultimate luxury good of Medieval Europe – they were rare, they were expensive and because the Medieval consumer didn’t understand where they came from, they were inherently exotic.

We’ll explore how spices traveled thousands of miles from Indonesia to the East coast of Africa, along the most globally complex trade routes of the known world, in order to reach their European markets. And how the European demand for spices led monarchs to search for direct access to the spices…heralding the age of European exploration.”
