Relics to Show Ancient Road
A wind from the Silk Road will rush into Beijing during the upcoming Spring Festival which falls on February 1 - a special exhibition on relics from the Silk Road in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region will open at the National Museum of Chinese History from January 15 to April 15.

Called "Tianshan Mountain, Ancient Road, Winds from the East and the West," the exhibition will include valuable relics, most of which have never been shown before, such as the Qiemo (Qarqan) Mummies which were discovered in 1930 in Qiemo County in southern Xinjiang.

The exhibition kicks off a series of exhibitions at the National Museum of Chinese History in 2003.

Japanese national treasures will debut in China in an exhibition on Japanese cultural relics from May 1 to June 15.

The exhibition is organized by the Japanese Ministry of Culture, the National Nara Museum of Japan and the National Museum of Chinese History.

The highlight in 2003 will be an exhibition in summer entitled "The Civilization of Classic Rome," where 155 art treasures of the Classic Rome will be borrowed from major museums in Italy with the help of the Italian Government.

Following Rome, wonders from the ancient Congo kingdom will be shown in an exhibition called "Art of the Ancient Congo" from September 1 to November 30.

The exhibit's 187 relics from the ancient African kingdom are from a collection of a European scholar.

At the end of 2003, an exhibition will be showing the collection from the Summer Resort in the city of Chengde, North China's Hebei Province.
