A detailed map of the centre of Peking in 1900, showing particularly the locations of the various foreign legations in the city
1900 was the key year in the Boxer Rebellion, which culminated in the siege of the legations in June, lasting for 55 days. The diplomats, soldiers, foreign civilians and Chinese Christians caught up in the siege were eventually freed by the 20,000 troops of the Eight Nation Alliance. The occupation of Peking, along with other cities in Northern China, which followed, lasted for a year and was accompanied by widespread allied atrocities.
