Archaeological Research in China (manuscript), 1923-1934
About the Project
What was it like to conduct an archaeological expedition in China in the midst of civil war and economic strife? Explore the realities of field work as you transcribe this unpublished manuscript that constituted a field report chronicling C.W. Bishop’s Freer Gallery-sponsored expeditions in northern and central China during the period 1923 to 1934. You’ll learn about the day-to-day operations and the rich Chinese histories that emerged out of the uncovered archaeological record.
