If you by any chance travel to Zhengding County, you might meet a senior who is exploring the area's history. However, she is not like any regular visitors. She pays attention to ugly stones covered with mud, and she observes them very carefully. 

If you are curious and ask her why, she says these stones may reveal priceless information about history and solve mysteries. This lady is in fact a cultural heritage protector. 

CRI's Sam Duckett recently visited her and brought us back several stories behind cultural heritage protection.
