What is RSS, and how does it work?

This cultural exploration is extensive in the detailed descriptions of its content. However, it is also limited in its representation of Chinese culture. Included is a small portion of that culture. There are an infinite number of ways in an infinite number of combinations that the culture of this area could be represented through description. This is one of them.

Take caution that some or all of the files and images in this section may take a few to several minutes to download to your computer. Many images are large in size.

Also, many pages on this website have Chinese character text. For more information on how to view Chinese characters on your computer, please visit Exploring Chinese History :: Features :: Reading Chinese Characters.

Please feel free to have a look around. I hope you find what you're looking for. If not, or if you find any errors on this site, or want me to include any information, please drop me a line.

What's New

21 July 2007

Cultural Heritage of China has its own forum!

Beginning 21 July 2007, the Global Public Forum for Cultural Heritage of China went online. It is in the process of being introduced to the world.

The forum will be used as a more effective communication tool between the editors, contributors, users and the author in a way that has never been done on this website. In Global Public Forum :: Projects, users are encouraged to submit new ideas or information relating to the content of this website. This is where ideas will become refined to the point of content. As you can tell, content is a little spartan at the moment.

While the forum is located at Exploring Chinese History, there is a dedicated forum for this website and the other supplemental website, The Art And Images Of China.

Moving forward, links to 'discuss this topic' will begin to appear on various pages throughout this website, which will lead tot he forum.

I hope you will join and contribute often!

Have a look at the forum for yourself...
