In the second episode of his series tracing the story of the most famous trade route in history, Dr Sam Willis travels west to central Asia, to a part of the Silk Road often overlooked and yet the place of major innovations, big historical characters and a people - the Sogdian's - whose role was pivotal to its success. He travels through Tajikistan to meet the last survivors of that race and discovers how they were built by armies of captive craftsmen for one of the greatest conquerors the world has ever seen: Timur. He then goes back to school to learn where modern mathematics and astronomy were born.
