Activity Idea

The Chinese banknote talked about in this resource was 500 years old. Draw a timeline of objects you think you might have been important to 'barter for' or buy in England (and China?) over the last 500 years. Not everyone used money 500 years ago, so think about the 'status' or occupation of the person who would be doing the bartering or buying.

The Google Map below shows the very remote part of China where Ida Miles lived in the 1880s
