ABSTRACT: In September 2009, Guangxi Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology excavated three tombs of the Han Dynasty at Kongwuling in Guigang City. These three tombs were brick-chamber tombs and vertical earthen shaft pit tombs, all of which had ramp passageways. M1 and M3 were brick-chamber tomb with double rear chambers and vertical earthen shaft pit tomb respectively, the dates of both of which were the early Eastern Han Dynasty; M2 was a joint tomb in separate graves, the date of which was the late Western Han Dynasty. In these three tombs, 167 pieces (or sets) of grave goods were unearthed, including potteries, bronzes, iron and silver wares and stone implements, of which potteries took the bulk; the main pottery types were ding-tripods, cases, vases, gui-tureens, jars and models of wells, barns and ovens, all of which were popular types in the Han tombs of the same period in the Lingnan Region. However, large amount of elaborate celadon wares with even and shining glazes were unearthed from M1, which was seldom seen in the Han tombs of Lingnan Region.
The Discoveries and Preliminary Understandings of the Elements of Kele Culture in Indochina
: Kele Culture Indochina Migrations of Ethnic Groups Yelang (State)
ABSTRACT: Kele Culture is an aboriginal bronze culture of the Southwestern Yi people in the Warring-States Period through the Qin and Han Dynasties mainly distributed in the present-day northwestern Guizhou Province. In recent years, the cultural elements related to Kele Culture, such as head encasing burials and bronze swords with pommels in the shape of hollowed plaque, are discovered in Cambodia, Vietnam and other areas of Indochina. Obviously, these cultural elements came from Kele Culture in China; their appearance in Indochina not only provided new materials for understanding the relationship between the Southwestern Yi area and Indochina Peninsula but also is very meaningful for the researches on the migrations of the ethnic groups in the southwestern territory of the Han Dynasty and the history and culture of Yelang State in the angle of archaeology.
