The Great Wall Outside of China with William Lindesay

Relaxing on a balmy summer night, surrounded by interesting people, fantastic food, and locally-brewed beer… If this sounds like the perfect setting, check out WildChina’s next Where the Wild Things Are series. On Thursday, May 31st, join us at Great Leap Brewery to hear William Lindesay, one of China’s foremost experts of the Great Wall, discuss his recent discovery of a new portion of the Wall in Mongolia.  A delicious pasta dinner will be provided by the newly opened Mercante — we promise it will be delicious.

William Lindesay has lived in China for 14 years during which he has spent “more than 800 days on the Great Wall.” In 1987, he made what China’s Xinhua News Agency described as “the most successful foreign exploration of the Great Wall”, and he recounted his 2,470 km solo adventure in “Alone on the Great Wall” published in the UK, USA and Germany.

Since 1995 he has primarily been engaged in systematic research of the Great Wall in the Beijing region and two books for Oxford University Press – “Images of Asia: The Great Wall” and “Beijing’s Great Wall: Researches and Impressions” are the result of his efforts.
