Join Ann Roddy, Director of the Elling Eide Research Library, for an illuminating discussion of the Grotto Library of Dunhuang.  In the early eleventh century, a cavernous library was sealed behind a painted clay wall, within the Mogao Caves, along the Silk Roak of Dunhuang, China.  In 1900 a Daoist monk discovered the Dunhuang Library and its treasure of 50,000 documents, hundreds of paintings, textiles, and other objects of material culture.
