Abstract (in English)

Through its long history of more than 2000 years, Silk Road in Xinjiang produced many sites and a large amount of cultural relics, many of which have survived. This region, once the hinge where the world’s main culture systems converged, was a bridge connecting cultures of the East and the West; different cultures impacted, infiltrated, and mixed with each other before they spread out widely to other regions.
