“Archeology and Us – the World in a Broken Tile” with Sharon Wong

The discovery of the Sacred Hill Site in the new Sung Wong Toi Station has aroused the public’s concern on conserving archaeological sites with historical importance. In this episode, we interviewed Assistant Professor Dr. Sharon Wong, who has devoted decades to archaeology and cultural heritage studies. Through investigating specific archaeological sites, relics, ruins and bones, Sharon digs into the local culture, history and human activities in the past, as well as the connections with the outside world. Sharon argues that understanding the past enables us to understand the present and the future, and it helps to construct our cultural identity.
