500-1500 ce

Hey Historium, I have a really difficult prompt (in my opinion) for a summer essay for school. I could really use a little help, Here's the prompt:

How did the movement of goods, people and ideas affect a particular Asian region during the period 500-1500 CE, and how are those impacts revealed in the contemporary cultures of that region?

Choose one of the following Asian regions:
East Asia (ex.: China)
South Asia (ex.: India)
Southeast Asia (ex.: Indonesia)
The Middle East (ex.: Iraq)

I'm NOT asking you to write my essay, just give me some Ideas on topics to cover. Also, please cite you sources.

you need to narrow it down to something more specific, but on a general level you'll more or less be looking at.

Ideas : the effect of the spread of Islam

Goods : the silk road (though most of the silk road goods were already being traded long before 500 AD.)

You might want to cover the rise of the Mongols in the 13th century ad and the opening up of land routes between Europe and asia.
