Chinese Cultural Relics is the official English translation of the prestigious award-winning Chinese archaeology journal Wenwu (Cultural Relics). Published since the 1950s, Wenwu is well known in China and abroad for its quality articles and in-depth reporting of Chinese archaeological surveys and fieldwork. Until the publication of Chinese Cultural Relics, the information presented in this key resource has only been accessible to those who can read Chinese.

Each issue of Chinese Cultural Relics contains select content from recent issues of Wenwu. In addition to high-quality translation, each article includes the same detailed photographs and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations as in the Chinese publication.

Chinese Cultural Relics covers a wide range of topics, including: new archaeological findings, research & exploration, archaeological preservation, bronze wares, ceramics, ancient seals & currency, grottoes & statues, bamboo slips & documents, museum exhibitions, ancient towns & villages, inscriptions & epitaphs, and archaeology of science & technology.

Reviews:

Jarrett A. Lobell, executive editor of Archaeology magazine

“The publication of Chinese Cultural Relics is a signal moment not only for scholars, but also for anyone interested in Chinese archaeology. For the first time, non-Chinese-speakers will have access to the highest-quality research in the field just as it was first published in the renowned journal Wenwu.”


Elinor Pearlstein, associate curator of Chinese art at The Art Institute of Chicago

“As a curator, I am dependent on the cumulative work of Chinese archaeologists to provide these objects with biographies—to evaluate their age, provenance, context, and function. Toward this end, the excavation reports and other studies published in Wenwu have been essential but challenging resources. Their publication in complete and accurate English translation, together with clear photos and line drawings, will prove invaluable for more thoughtful and accurate research.”
