Deborah Bekken, an anthropologist, tells us about the fascinating story of the brand-new Cyrus Tang Hall of China at Chicago’s Field Museum. Along the way, she tells us about how the Field Museum goes about acquiring, building, and curating collections, as well as about the fascinating history of China over the aeons! We learn how literature and Java sea wrecks (through pottery) have told us so much about Chinese culture and economics many years ago. (Art attribution: sothebys.com)
