In March this year, 20 undergraduate students from ANTH2730 Preserving Cultural Heritage and some research postgraduate students conducted their field trip in Lei Yue Mun under the guidance of Prof. Sharon Wong and the research topic is about preserving the Hong Kong ceramic factory site and its intangible cultural heritage- ceramic craftsmanship from Jingdezhen to Hong Kong. After the field trip, 8 undergraduate and postgraduate students were interested to be the volunteers in conducting archaeological fieldwork, artifact analysis and curating an exhibition supported by Jockey Club Lei Yue Mun Plus and The Lord Wilson Heritage Trust. This exhibition intends to show the rise and fall of the ceramic industry in Hong Kong during the late colonial period from the archaeological perspective; multiple interpretations of ceramic “objects”: from fake antiques, handicrafts, movie props to archaeological artifacts, and how the ceramic factory play a role in the daily lives of Lei Yue Mun community and the “Hollywood of the East” during the 1960s to 1970s.
