Copy the questions from the screen for Heimler's History "Cultural Considerations of Trade" Unit 2. 

2. Notes, Video, Discussion: Heimler's History - "Cultural Considerations of Trade" Unit 2
In this video Heimler talks about the cultural consequences of trade in 1200-1450. Goods for sale was arguably the least important thing that merchants carried from place to place. They also carried with them cultural and technological goods as well, and it was these offerings that had a disproportionate impact on the cultures into which the merchants came.

We'll talk about syncretism in religion. As Buddhism spread into different cultures, it changed. As merchants introduced Islam into East Africa, it not only changed the religion of the Bantu, but created an entirely new language: Swahili.

And merchants carried technological advancements with them as well. Chief among them was the lateen sail, the sternpost rudder, the magnetic compass, and the astrolabe.

Not to mention, the relative safety of the Afro-Eurasian trade routes provided the occasion for travelers to see the world and report back, not least of whom was Marco Polo and Ibn Battuta.

This video corresponds to Unit 2 Topic 5 in the AP World History: Modern curriculum.
