Archaeological Institute Lecture: Archaeology and Fiction — Is It Useful? Credible? The Making of Ancient China’s Tiger Queen

Program Type: History
Ages: Adult


This talk is based on the artifacts from the unlooted tomb of Lady Hao, a historical person in the Shang dynasty around 2500 BCE. She is also mentioned in the oracle bones that represent the earliest readable Chinese writing. As a war leader. shaman, landowner, mother of three, and presumably the bringer of horses and chariots to Shang, she is a character whose life is worth celebrating, as well as worth being brought to the public as a fictionalized story.
