The 1,000-year-old wooden bridges that keep modern China moving

"The building of the bridges relies on a skilled craftsmanship, with a woodworking master directing the carpentry of a team of woodworkers.

This craftsmanship has been passed on down the years from one generation to another by masters teaching apprentices or relatives within a clan following strict procedures.

The clans then play a vital role in the building, maintenance and protection of the bridges."
