Over 90 Philippine teenagers of Chinese took a tour to Wang Yirong Museum in Yantai, East China's Shandong province recently to explore the origin and evolution of Chinese characters.

Wang Yirong (1845-1900), a scholar and antiquarian born in Yantai's Fushan county, was the first person who discovered and collected oracle-bone inscriptions in China. He noticed that the symbols on animal bones and tortoise shells looked like a form of writing.

Chinese oracle-bone inscriptions were included on the list of UNESCO Memory of the World International Register in 2017.
