Beauty and the East
Durham’s Oriental Museum celebrates 50th birthday. Originally planned as a resource for teaching and research for Durham University’s School of Oriental Studies, the museum now annually welcomes not only students, but thousands of visitors from all over the world. The museum is home to more than 23,000 objects from Egypt, the Near and Middle East, China, Japan, India, the Himalayan region and South- East Asia. An exhibition, Seek knowledge, even as far as China, runs until September 26. Events, workshops and family activities will run throughout the summer.
