Eastern Influences, 500 to 15 AD


Eastern Influences, 500 to 63 BC


This map shows the spread of Eastern influence into Europe from 500 BC to 15 AD mostly through trade and expanding empires. One can find these influences in the artifacts that have been discovered in different areas of Europe, from Oriental silks to Scythian Scythian animal-style objects. Evidence has also been found of burial sites of different groups, such as Thraco-Getic Thraco-Getic, as well as evidence of Greek colonies on the Southern coast of France. .
