This year marks the 100th anniversary of modern Chinese archaeology, and the country's legislators and political advisers discussed achievements in the field during the two sessions in Beijing.

A series of events, such as symposiums and publishing projects, to increase public awareness of archaeology are being planned, says Liu Yuzhu, director of the National Cultural Heritage Administration and a member of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

The compilation of a 5 million-character history of Chinese archaeology will be completed soon and the book will be released in October, says Wang Wei, president of the Chinese Society of Archaeology and a deputy to the 13th National People's Congress.

"That will be a milestone for Chinese academia and is set to benefit generations of archaeologists in the future," Wang says, adding that more than 100 academic issues are included in the book, which will be "an easily accessible and crucial reference for international scholars to understand archaeological achievements in China".
