Chapter 10: Becoming the World 1000 – 1300 CE At this time people conducted trade through the use of sea lanes and trade routes. Trade is powerful because it facilitates the exchange of ideas, cultures and technology. The change from land to sea trade came about which meant that trade could now be faster and would cost less. The importance of this is also with the development of technology such as the compass and the saxton traveling by sea became easier because of more accurate maps. The major trade route was Quanzhou which is on the east coast of China to India, and the major trading centers were Cairo and Alexandria which made up the Egyptian Anchorage. At this point in time China was ahead in regards to developing new technology but behind in regards to learning and education. Sub-Saharan Africa After about 1000 CE sub-Saharan Africa is not so far anymore, because a route emerges that is across the dessert connecting them to trade. A hot item on the market is salt because it can be used to preserve food. Africans are also enslaved by Arabs at this time but it is different than the enslavement we know about in America. Those enslaved by the Arabs are integrated all throughout society working in a variety of different jobs. Islamic Law allows for this slavery at this time, but also says the best thing you can do for your slave is to free them. The faith did not approve if the mistreatment of slaves and trials often occurred if a person mistreated their slaves. The statement I just made does not say that no slave was mistreated. Mansa Musa who reigned from 1312 to 1332 was the richest man on earth during this period. He often paraded around with his gold on his pilgrimages to Mecca. Also at this point in time the center of Islamic learning was Timbuktu. Zimbabwe becomes important to the trade network because of gold. Islam had a sense of diversity and uniformity, many Muslim rulers had no intent of forcing people to convert but had a jiza. A jiza is a tax on those who do not practice Islam
