Learn Chinese in China

One Million Days in China, Glasgow

Recommended Posts


If any of you are lucky enough to be in Glasgow, I just got this via email

One Million Days in China is at The Burrell Collection in Glasgow from 16 July2004 until 13 February 2005. Entry is free. This unique exhibition introduces,explores and celebrates 4000 years of Chinese history and culture through Sir William Burrell's world-class collection of Chinese art.

The online exhibition features 42 objects from the exhibition, and covers areas

from the Archaeological Exploration into Ancient China to The Chinese Community in Glasgow today.

Visitors to the online exhibition can also see the events programme, vote for their Object of the Week, see a selection of gifts and souvenirs for sale in the Burrell shop, and find out more about China's history, art, culture and language through a comprehensive series of links.

The comprehensive series of links includes this site, and that combined with my soft spot for Glasgow (went to university there) means they're getting this plug :mrgreen: . If you want to be awkward you could wander around pointing at certain exhibits and asking to see the export certificate from the Chinese Department of Antiquities - always great sport in any UK museum . . .

I've got my sights set on substitute professor for Edinburgh University's Chinese history class next!
