I am looking for a blank outline map of Silk Road routes from the Pacific to Europe including African and European cities and outposts. Ideally the route(s) will be pre-drawn. Students label cities/outposts. Current sources insufficient.

    This seems very specific. Have you considered making your own? It would probably be much less work than scouring the internet for the perfect rendition for your purposes. – T.E.D. Oct 1 '19 at 16:26

    Consider taking a labeled map and removing the labels in your favorite image editor? – AllInOne Oct 1 '19 at 16:32
  • Here is an ArcGIS online layer with the data you want. You can turn various layers on and off and change the basemap if you want. arcgis.com/home/webmap/… – ed.hank Oct 1 '19 at 17:18

Maybe this image might be interesting:

It represents XI and XII centuries, and covers most of Asia, Africa and Europe. The map includes a list of sources that you might try to follow.
