It is learned that the early glimmers of China's Bronze Age civilization emerged along the upper reaches of the Yellow River around 5,000 years ago. About 4,000 years ago, the middle reaches witnessed the birth of early states, guided by rituals, which laid the foundation for China's ancient history centered around its heartland. The Xia Dynasty (2070-1600 B.C.) ushered in China's Bronze Age, while the Shang (1600-1046 B.C.) and Zhou (1046-771 B.C.) Dynasties marked the peak of China's bronze culture.
The four parts of the exhibition illustrate the development of bronze culture from the early age to the three dynasties, respectively.
The exhibition is the second exhibition featuring the Yellow River civilization by the museum, after its exhibition on the archaeological findings in the relics of Taosi and Shimao.
The exhibition runs to Dec. 17.
