上山下海 —— 四川三星堆及江口古戰場.廣東南海I號沉船遺址:香港中文大學人類學系考古實習成果展 

Date: 15 Oct - 20 Dec 2018
Venue: University Library, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Only through the “touching the ground” experience, can we understand the meaning of material culture in the past and explain to our contemporaries why we need to care about archaeological ruins. Our students learned a wide range of fieldwork skills and techniques through these meaningful archaeological internships. More important, the hands-on experience provides a great chance to them for better understanding the Bronze Age civilization in Sichuan and the Jiangkou sunken treasure legend. To team up with the underwater archaeology group, we want to present not only the fascinating archaeological experience “From the Mountains (Sichuan) to the Sea (Guangdong)” but also provide the general public some reflections inspired by these internships such as the variety and diversity of ancient civilizations in China and the role of Guangdong and Sichuan on the ancient Silk Roads. You are all cordially invited to visit this upcoming exhibition and attend the following activities.
