Newly discovered photographs of Beijing, 1900–1902

The photographs of Beijing in this exhibition were taken in 1901 and 1902 shortly after the end of the Boxer Uprising 義和團運動. They come from an album in the possession of Svetlana Paichadze, assistant professor at Hokkaido University. Although we cannot identify the photographer, it is very likely that the photographs were taken by representatives of the Russian legation in Beijing or someone from the military sent to China in 1900 to suppress the Uprising.

Debt Disputes and Trade Routes: Jiaozhi Merchants in Eastern Han Changsha

Zhang Zhaoyang
Jiaozhi, in present-day northern Vietnam, lay at the southern frontier of the Han Empire (206 BC-220 AD). A lack of textual records has long since hampered academic research on the region. Now, though, newly published Eastern Han (25 A.D.–220 A.D.) documents excavated at Changsha provide us with valuable historical evidence on Jiaozhi. One record shows that a number of Jiaozhi merchants engaged in long-distance grain trade in Changsha and were involved in a debt dispute with local residents. Most immediately, this document affords a rare, first-hand account of the lives and activities of ordinary Jiaozhi merchants. More broadly, it can help us to understand commercial interactions and migrations between Jiaozhi and other southern commanderies in the Eastern Han period.
