    Tour guide explaining about the ancient writings 4 more images

    Favorite thing: Over here at Yinxu museum, is where visitors witnessing the oldest ever writings of China, carved by sharp tools on the animal bones and mostly on the turtle shells, 4000+ years ago.

    As those carved-wordings are so small and not easy to read and understand (most are YiJing content), the museum enlarged it by building a series of large human size stone replica of the turtle shell writings, so that it is easy for tour guides or lecturers to explain (first photo) to visitors and also for photography and study purposes.

    These writing system is actually the writing system in use today in China, just that the "fonts" or typography look so different, the overall meaning is the same as the writings of the Peoples' Republic of China.

    Favorite thing: Outside the museum are open spaces like what is shown in photos, I thought they want to show us glass house garden with tropical temperature, walk closer I discovered it was skeletons of Yin peoples and animals during that time. Some are the war cart with horses buried alive together with humans and weapons, etc.

    Favorite thing: I did not study the full time course of Boiling human head, no PhD or Master Degree certificate of Boiling human head from me.

    Need not worry though, if you want to study Boiling human head, you can come over here to study but I am not sure whether they still teach this subject and also not sure about the cost, tuition fees and whether or not they take foreign students, I suggest maybe you can try some of the World's Best top 10 University, I am sure they should have it.
