Digital technology has also played a greater part in the revival of the oracle bone script. Big data platform Yinqi Wenyuan was put to use in 2019, the year that marked the 120th anniversary of the discovery of the inscriptions, and Song was behind its establishment. The platform gives people huge access to reference and research on oracle bones.

Weeks ago, the National Museum of Chinese Writing, in Anyang, unveiled its first mascot named after Cang Jie, the legendary figure credited with inventing the Chinese writing system.

He is featured on various creative products and put in different digitalized scenarios to tell the tales of Chinese characters.

Recently, the museum opened to the public new exhibition halls under its second-phase construction and a Chinese Writing Park, marking its effort to provide systematic information on the formation and progress of Chinese writing.
