Feb. 19, Friday “History of China in 50 Objects” by Newman Tours for RASBJ


RASBJ has asked Newman Tours to lead us on an exploration of “The History of China in 50 Objects”, for a fresh perspective on the Middle Kingdom. Inspired by the wildly popular radio series, this tour was created by Newman Tours to explore the human history of China through 50 of the most celebrated art objects in Beijing’s National Museum of China. Our guide will take you on an informative and entertaining journey of 4,000 years, using the most venerated objects of the museum’s collection to illustrate the principal developments of China’s epic history. Hear about reknowned Royal Asiatic Society explorer Sir Aurel Stein (1862-1943), the fabled Silk Road archaeologist!
