Made in China

Britain and China have had a fascinating and complex relationship, with considerable cultural impact in each other.

This study day explores the revisionist view of the Opium Wars, missionaries, the Treaty of Nanking and China’s attempts at modernization. It also considers the earliest Chinese settlers who arrived in Britain almost 400 years ago. There will be the opportunity to see the beautifully illustrated journals prepared by naval surgeon Dr Edward Cree, who served in the China Seas between 1837 and 1861.
