Edward Shaughnessy, distinguished professor in early Chinese studies at the University of Chicago, discusses the casting and inscription of a Western Zhou dynasty bronze vessel called the Shi Wang Ding, acquired by the Chicago Institute of Art in 2005. This lecture considers both the dating of the vessel and the significance of the casting technique for the presentation of writing in ancient China.
