Alex Byrne mentioned National Library of China

Technology provides new and expanding ways in which to communicate but the desire to do so is an unbroken thread of human history. That was what impressed Byrne when he visited China's national library. There he was taken into its vaults to view its greatest treasures. Before him was a series of inscribed animal bones almost 5000 years old - among the world's earliest written communication.
