Dr Qin Cao is currently Curator of the Chinese collections, including items of the Himalayan and Mongolian regions, at the National Museum of Scotland. She gained her DPhil in Archaeology from the University of Oxford with a study of Chinese weapons of the Shang period in a collaborative project with the British Museum. Qin joined the British Museum in 2012 as a trainee curator of Asian coins as part of their Future Curators programme. She catalogued the United Reform Church collection and was involved in the refurbishment of the Citi Money Gallery and assisted with the Numismatic Summer School. As part of the programme, she also worked at the Manchester Museum, cataloguing their Asian coin collection. Her primary interest is in Chinese material culture, in particular weapons of the Shang and Zhou dynasties and numismatics, as well as the history of collecting.
This seminar is organised by the Scottish Centre for China Research with support from the MacFie Bequest.
