Recent Archaeological Discoveries from
Northern China

June 16, 2012 - October 21, 2012

In 1908, the Institute’s founder Sterling Clark organized a scientific expedition to North China to document the region’s terrain and ecology.  To commemorate the centennial of this journey, in 2008 the Institute initiated a series of collaborations with Chinese arts agencies and museums. This cultural exchange initiative culminates at the Clark this summer with a special presentation of recent archaeological discoveries from the Shanxi and Gansu provinces never before seen outside of China.
