(101124) -- RUI'AN, Nov. 24, 2010 (Xinhua) -- Craftsmen carve wooden movable types in Dongyuan Village of Rui'an City, east China's Zhejiang Province, Nov. 23, 2010. The UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Monday announced that wooden movable-type printing and two other elements practised in China were inscribed on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding. As one of the world's oldest printing techniques, wooden movable-type printing invented by Bi Sheng from 1041 to 1048 A.D. is still maintained in Rui'an County, Zhejiang Province, where it is used in compiling and printing clan genealogies.
