At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Lidan was based in the Department of Asia and her partner placement was spent at Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Newcastle.

In 2009 an element of the programme was a morning of presentations, in which groups of participants presented a 10-minute illustrated talk, prompted by the task to consider a new display of the fellows’ cultures at the British Museum.  Lidan’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Sacrifices and Offerings of Shang Peoples: Chinese Ritual Bronzes in the Shang Dynasty.
