Technology and Culture Change along the Proto Silk Roads

Asian Art Association & Curator's Circle Lecture Series

Dr. Rowan Flad, John E. Hudson Professor of Archaeology, Harvard University, shares the findings of his work in Gansu, China, on the Tao River Archaeological Project (TRAP), 2012-2017.

Tracing the nature of technology and technological change migrating along the routes of the proto Silk Roads, and the changes wrought on the culture and society of the area by the introduction of that technology, Dr. Flad discovered a complexity that radically transformed material culture and human lives in Northwest China about 4000 years ago. That transformation laid the groundwork for the Chinese Bronze Age.

Doors open at 6 pm.

Admission to the lecture and reception following is free, but reservations are requested and will be accepted starting in mid-October.

Museum admission is required for gallery access.
