UNESCO-recognized Phuc Giang woodblock displayed

Phuc Giang school woodblocks, a world documentary heritage, are now being showcased at the Temple of Literature in Hanoi.

On display are also documents, books, digitized and translated versions, and recreations of the woodblock of the Nguyen Huy clan in Ha Tinh province. We want to introduce this heritage to residents and visitors in Hanoi. We have involved experts of the Han Nom Research Institute and members of the Nguyen Huy clan in translating and classifying the documents. It takes a long time to translate and publish the document to the public, said Nguyen Tri Son, Director of the Ha Tinh Museum.

Phuc Giang school woodblocks have been listed in the Memory of the World Asia Pacific Regional Register since 2016 for its importance and influence on national education from the middle of the 18th to the early 20th centuries.
