This article continues the series about the Silk Road exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. As mentioned, the Silk Road exhibit betrays its name and deceives the visitors, individuals, schoolteachers and students who come to view it. Some of the visitors are of those cultures who made formidable contributions. Yet this exhibit omits or gives scant recognition to these contributions.
