Experience the splendor, sophistication, and extravagance of two mysterious kingdoms that flourished at the dawn of China’s Bronze Age. Before they were conquered by a powerful emperor and buried by 2,000 years of imperial history, the Yangzi River Valley states were highly advanced cultures with luxurious tastes, imaginative styles, and a yearning for immortality.

This one-hour virtual lecture by one of our community speaker docents is followed by a half-hour Q&A.
