During my trip to the Getty there was an exhibit called the Cave Temples of DunHuang. In this exhibit there were many old pieces of parchment including the oldest written parchment in the world. The Getty is the first location in the United States that have hosted this piece. It is very interesting to be able to see how far back humans were able to record events. Before this there are no first hand account of any events in the history of the Earth, everything we know about time before this parchment is theory. The trip to the Getty was more than anything an entertaining experience, being that is is so close to UCLA I will definitely be going back there at some point.
