Camel bells bursting, a show brings Kevin back to ancient Chang’an. It was the starting point of the Silk Road and a place where more than a dozen dynasties flourished. It has witnessed the alternation of dynasties in China and cultural communication. The origin of papermaking also starts here. Making a seemingly simple piece of paper requires countless steps over a long time. The Chinese characters written on the paper have truly witnessed the evolution and change of history, from complex to simple, slow to fast.
