Write paragraph connecting the imagery in these photos to empires in the modern world.
Think:
  • Hapsburg
  • Austro-Hungarian
  • 19th century
These are the remnants of empire. poor countries do not have displays like this. china does not have this. china is trying to build museums to show that they are a wealthy and powerful nation.

Connect to the Field Museum.
