China's Kingdom of Chu
Get up close with China’s Kingdom of Chu—an Ancient world full of wonder that brought remarkable and lasting achievements in art, literature, and philosophy.
This edition of DIG Magazine brings you and your children an astounding culture full of dramatic shifts in power, new views of philosophy and religion, and innovative advances. You will play detective right beside real-life archaeologists as you work on excavations, discover DNA, dig into “wet” mummies, and attempt to follow The Riddle of Xiongjia Cemetery. Along the way, you can sample Chinese cuisine, learn how to write characters, ride in a dragon boat, hear an Ancient folktale, and sample the sort of music the king of Chu enjoyed.
