Ann Paludan, Writer

Mexican Embassy Residence

We are delighted to announce that Ann Paludan, the authoritative writer of the well-known standard book "The Imperial Ming Tombs" has agreed to give a talk on her latest studies on the Statuary of the Chinese Spirit Road. She has been working on this for the last six years and her research covers spirit roads from the Han to Qing dynasties.

Ann was one of the first women to enter the British foreign service and from 1972 to 1976 her husband was Danish ambassador in Peking during which time she researched much of the material for her famous book.
