Historical Site Series from the Shenzhen Daily

This list has been recovered from the files used to create my old homepage, the Shenzhen Buzz.

From December 2006 to May 2007, the venerable Shenzhen Daily published a series of articles on the city's historical sites, in cooperation with the Shenzhen Administration of the Preservation of Cultural and Historical Relics.

These appeared on the Monday Travel page, with the exceptions of the Chinese New Year and May Holiday weeks. Some of these "historical sites" are actually archaeological sites, and there is little to see there. Please note that I did NOT write these articles, though I have written about most of these sites.
Here are links to the articles, arranged by date. I have given the date, title, a (note) where necessary, a link to the HTML version, and a link to the PDF version (requires Adobe reader).

OH NO! At this writing (March, 2014) the PDF versions are unavailable on line. I'll leave the links in case they come back; it's a real shame, as they had numerous pictures.

Update: I found eight of them. You can choose them by clicking "View PDF here" on eight of the first nine below; or see them all by clicking here.

Anyway, the information is still there in the HTML versions.

LOTS of reading: Enjoy!
