An oracle bone inscriptions-themed exhibition will be opened at the National Museum of China from Oct. 22. Jiaguwen, or oracle bone inscriptions, are an ancient Chinese language named for their inscriptions on tortoise shells and animal bones. They are a primitive form of Chinese characters and the oldest fully-developed characters in China. (National Museum of China/Handout via Xinhua)
