"When teaching our children ancient history, we are sure to include Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome. Unfortunately we sometimes omit another great ancient civilization on the other side of the globe-- Ancient China."
"The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is one of the standout destinations on campus. The Museum explores a wide range of cultures, and thousands of teachers and young people come from around the world to learn from its many displays and exhibits. These guides for educators can be used in conjunction with an in-person visit or to complement other classroom activities. Visitors can take advantage of five high-quality guides that cover Ancient Egypt, China, Math, and Mesoamerica, and also contain classroom activities that involve writing exercises, problem solving, quizzes, puzzles, and much more. These materials can be used in a range of settings and their easy prose and accessible manner make them most useful."
Ancient Discoveries is a documentary television series that focuses on ancient technologies. The show’s theme is that many inventions which are thought to be modern have ancient roots or in some cases may have been lost and then reinvented. Episodes of the regular series have expanded to cover other areas such as Egypt, China and East Asia, and the Islamic world. Ancient Discoveries was made for The History Channel by Wild Dream Films based in Cardiff in the UK. Much of the filming was done on location across the world. The series uses contributions from archaeologists and other experts, footage of historical sites and artifacts, computer generated reconstructions and dramatized reconstructions along with experiments and tests on reconstructed artifacts.

China has unearthed the ruins of an ancient palace near the tomb of the country's first emperor that was already famed for its terracotta soldiers, state media said on Saturday.
The discovery is the latest at the mausoleum, which dates back more than two millennia and became one of the greatest modern archaeological finds after a peasant digging a well stumbled upon the life-size warriors in 1974.
The palace "is the largest complex ever found at the cemetery", the Xinhua news agency said, citing Sun Weigang, a researcher at the archaeology institute of northern Shaanxi province where the site is located.
