Dr Hajni Elias recently gave a talk the with title “Stele for Magistrate Jing Yun 景雲: An Eastern Han Memorial Stele from the Southwest with Reference to the Chuci 楚辭.” The stele dates to 173 CE and was discovered at the banks of the Yangtze River in 2004.

The talk, part of the Dunhuang and Silk Road Seminar Series, focussed on the connection of the inscription with the Chuci (Songs of Chu), one of the oldest surviving collections of poems. The event was held on Zoom, which also meant that in addition to our usual audience from the vicinity of Cambridge and London, we were also joined by participants other countries, such as Germany and China.
