Material Culture - Objects: What is its date?
Developed with Michael Chang, George Mason University
This interactive exercise is designed for students. It shows how examining money carefully can help show a given society changed over time. Students read background information about societal changes in the People's Republic of China in the 20th century. They then are asked to examine two 10-yuan bills, one from 1965 and one from 1999, and determine which bill was printed in which year.
