During the millennium after 300 CE, significant changes occurred across Afroeurasia. Large 
states such as the Roman empire in the Mediterranean region collapsed. Large, multi-ethnic
states, such as the Arab empire formed and reformed. Throughout this period, invasions,
migrations, and state-building activities strengthened and extended contacts among people
in different parts of Africa, Asia, and Europe.  This increased interaction stimulated the exchange of goods and ideasover long distances. By the end of the Middle Ages an interconnected system of commercial and
cultural interchange extended across most of Afroeurasia.
