th May New look web site
If only it was possible to sit back and say ‘the web site is done’. Every time we believe it is all up-to-date and working well, technology comes along and offers new possibilities and challenges. Over the last twenty years it was initially a question of adding more complex features because everyone was using desktops with increasingly faster connections. Then along came the mobile/smartphones and reversed all this - web sites had to quickly become both simple and fast. Finally with faster/higher resolution screens and 5G networks on smartphones there is a move to putting back in more complex features.
In this revision we have put in a new menu. Instead of a cluttered second level menu with lots of links we've moved them all onto a drop-down menu. We've also put direct search and contact facilities on each page - you don't need to swap pages anymore.
All this should make it more usable on mobiles but not be a problem for desktop users. If we've broken anything that you liked, please let us know. Your comments on the new look will be much appreciated.
Our Facebook page has interesting stories about China or anything China related - often not reported elsewhere on other web sites.
Some posts will also keep you up-to-date with the latest pages and new features on this web site.
We tend to stay clear of politics and concentrate on the cultural side.
We normally only post every few days so, don't worry, it won't fill up your news feed.

Qin dynasty a miniature plastic model complete with banner engraved with words of your choosing, can be yours for free. A number of different forms are available, the charioteer can be used as a pen holder for instance. It's a novel way to promote an interest in history and archeology.
There are currently no plans for life-size models to be made available.
