——Exhibition Overview——

Foreword


Beijing, the world-renowned city that integrates ancient and modern culture, has witnessed the magnificent development of human civilization from the start of humanity to modern urban civilization in the present day. In order to inherit and build on Beijing's traditional culture to create an even more brilliant civilization, it is necessary for us to look back to its beginnings and explore the past and future of our homeland.


Traces of ancient human communities and cultural relics from various historical periods were discovered in and around the Western Hills and along the Yongding River banks. In other words, the hills and the river brought the history and culture of Beijing into existence. The region was a cultural artery from which flowed the harmony between nature, humankind and love for the motherland. It nourished the spiritual land of Beijingers and carried the historical gene inherited from the early days of East Asians and the Han Chinese people. There are still innumerable cultural relics and unresolved historical mysteries from this region, which are both enchanting and thought-provoking.


The Western Hills, boundless; the Yongding River, rippling. We are about to set off on a cultural journey that transcends ancient and modern times and which expresses our love for the motherland.
