"A Taste of History: Photographic Exhibition of Han Dynasty Food Culture"

The Han dynasty (206 BC to AD 220) was a glorious period in China's history that was also marked by significant developments in Chinese food culture. Various aspects of food culture, such as food production and processing, cooking methods, and usage of utensils, developed rapidly. Even today, some foods and eating habits dating from the Han dynasty are still interwoven within the way of life of Chinese people. By using images of relevant archaeological finds, this exhibition illustrates a variety of aspects of food culture during the Han dynasty, thereby allowing visitors to gain a better understanding of this fascinating subject.
