Chinese Cultural Relics

Official translation of the award-winning Chinese journal Wenwu

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.
