On a Saturday afternoon our Chinese History teacher took us to visit a museum.
The exhibition hall was decorated in an antique mode. Charts and pictures were hung on the walls. Many ancient utensils, weapons and arms, robes, crowns, coins, or naments, books and farm tools as well as recently unearthed relics were exhibited. Each dynasty was presented in a separated room along with written and pictorial descriptions. Our teacber now served as the narrator, giving us a detailed lecture on the development of Chinese history, and elucidated his new viewpoint on how to divide Chinese history into different stages.
We were happy to have such a vivid lesson, one that made us not only review what we had learnt in class but also feel proud of our motherland's great and glorious historical culture of more than five thousand years.
