This paper takes the Gandhāra region as a starting point to explore its wider connections as part of ancient trade networks from c. 300 BC onwards, often referred to as the early ‘Silk Road’. While taking a bottom-up approach to the archaeological record, we focus especially on the role and spread of the diverse Buddhist imagery along the trade routes that have been found throughout the Karakorum mountain range.
