CARAVANSARY

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

The silk road is usually discussed as the trade routes between China and the Meditteranean. But we know the trade we t deeper into Europe. The Russian nobility had no shortage of silk, as an example. Nor the French.
Anyone know whether there is any historical evidence of Vikings preying on the trade routes?

A map on Norwegian Wikipedia shows them in the Black Sea thru the Mediterranean, and to the Caspian Sea thru Russia, but no further.

Norse traders got all the way to Constantinople...

And, of course, if the Rus were descendents of viking traders... But it's pretty much going to depend on the wax and wane of the silk trade and the arc of the vikings.

Can you imagine what that Viking was thinking when he (or she!) acquired the statuette?
A remarkable collection of religious items sourced from diverse lands was discovered during archaeological excavations on the Swedish island of Helgo. Located in Lake Malaren, to the west of Stockholm, this small island was an important Viking trading and manufacturing centre (6th-11th centuries AD). It has produced an enormous collection of artefacts, including numerous exotic finds such as Arabic coins, Frankish glass and metal-work from across western Europe.

Undoubtedly the most extraordinary find discovered during the excavations at Helgo was a small, bronze Buddha. This devotional figure dates from circa the 6th century AD and was probably made in Kashmir, on the Pakistan/India border. The Buddha has a silver urna on his forehead, symbolizing the third eye, while the ears have long lobes, the insignia of royalty. He sits in a meditative pose upon a double lotus throne, the latter representing purity. The Buddha probably arrived in Helgo via Swedish merchants whose eastern trade routes were concentrated along Russian rivers such as the Volga.

The Souk email has just started going around the NYC community.

I thought it would be fun to make up obviously counterfeit Burning Man goods for "sale." 2015 Tickets where Burning Man is spelled wrong, etc.

But I'd need a barker.
