Summary: Existing for over 300 years, the Tang dynasty is considered a high point in the arts, science and commerce in China. Its influence remains strong today and is still evident in the city of X'ian (present day Chang'an). This book focuses on life in Chang?an during the Tang Empire. Each of the artefacts in the exhibition carries a story from this extraordinary city: from the elevation of tea drinking to an art form; the booming artisanship in gold, silver and ceramics; to great innovations in Chinese fashion and music.
