It is the first attempt to use interdisciplinary methods to recover several major ancient goldworking techniques. The workshop, which is a fruit of the research project, is divided into two sections. It begins with a brief lecture by Dr. Sam Tong, Postdoctoral Fellow of the Art Museum, on the techniques of precious metal chain making in ancient China and their cultural exchanges with other regions in Eurasian.
