Abstract:

The Zhouyuan Museum “The 1995 Season of Excavation of the Western Zhou Tombs at Laopuzi, Fufeng, Shaanxi”
  The Archaeological Team at  Zhouyuan conducted trial digging at the Western Zhou graveyard in 1980, and carried out rescue excavation at Huangdui Laopuzi in 1992, 1995 and 1996 respectively, where tombs had been visited by robbers repeatedly. The 1995 season of excavation opened 16 tombs and 2 horse pits, and brought to light bronze ritual vessels, weapons, chariotandhorse fittings as well as objects made of pottery, jade, stone, bone and shell. The upper chronological limit of tombs should be the reign period of King Mu, while the lower one, the later Western Zhou.


The Zhouyuan Museum, “The 1996 Season of Excavation of the Western Zhou Tombs at Laopuzi, Fufeng, Shaanxi”
  This season of excavation brought to light 8 tombs and 2 chariothorse pits, of which one ranks first among the chariotandhorse pits found so far in Zhouyuan area, in terms of size and yield. The funerary objects include bronze ritual vessel and chariotandhorse fittings along with objects made of pottery, jade, stone, bone and shell. The upper chronological limit of tombs should be the reign period of King Mu, while the lower one, the late Western Zhou.

Huang Zhanyue, “Two Problems Arising from Research of Western Han Royal Tombs”
  The first problem concerns the arrangement of imperial tombs. According to the author of the present essay, the emperors of the Western Han chose location for their own tombs rather than consulted the alleged zhaomu mortuary rule referred to in old texts. The second is about pian fang as recorded in old literature. The author refuted the opinion that pian fang was the corridor surrounding ti cou or the front chamber of a tomb. Instead, he believes that a chamber made of the pian wood, where coffin was placed, pian fang appeared only in the royal tombs of a wooden structure with ti cou.


Wei Zheng, “Date of a Tomb with a Mural Themed on Seven Worthy Men in Bamboo Groves near Nanjing”
  By far four tombs with murals showing seven worthy men in bamboo groves have been reported, all within the territory of Jiangsu province. Of them the three at Danyang are believed to be survivals of the Southern Qi Dynasty. Scholars split upon the date of the forth tomb, one located at Gongshan near Nanjing. Basing on his research on archaeological data, the author of the present essay believes that the tomb belongs choronologically to the middle and late LiuSong Period of the Southern Dynasty.
