Trabzon in the 19th Century: the Link Between Via Egnatia and the Silk Road
During the 19th century the Black Sea port city of Trabzon underwent a remarkable transformation which reflected the changing economic/social/political  fortune of the Eastern Black Sea/Caucasus region. The rise and fall of Trabzon as the major hub of the East – West trade in this period, having reached a peak in the aftermath of the Crimean War, is a historical development sealing the fate of the old sea link between the Silk Road and Via Egnatia as a result of a combination of mostly, but not exclusively, political factors. This article aims to analyze these factors, and  attempts to draw parallels with the current developments in the region.
