A General Survey of the Bamboo and Wood Slips of the Qin Dynasty Collected by Peking University
Institute for Excavated Text Research of Peking University
In the year 2010,Peking University obtained a collection of bamboo slips of the Qing dynasty by do- nation from abroad. Based on cataloging and examination of the text,10 volumes of bamboo slips,2 volumes of wood slips,along with assorted additional wooden and bamboo tablets and a wooden cup were recovered,totalling 794 objects. These slips were likely written during the reign of Emperor Qinshihuang,unearthed from tombs in the Jianghan Plain. Most of the documents are books,including politics,geogra- phy,social economy,literature,mathematics,medicine,calendar,magic,and folk beliefs of the  Qin  dy- nasty. Such a rich content is very rare in slips of the Qin dynasty found before this.

New Discoveries among Bamboo and Wood Slips of the Qin Dynasty Collected by Peking University
Institute for Excavated Text Research of Peking University
In the year 2010,Peking University obtained a collection of bamboo and wood slips of the Qin dynasty as a donation from abroad. In the same  year,the Institute for Excavated  Text  Research  of Peking University set about cataloging and preserving the slips. 751 bamboo slips ,4 bamboo tablets,21 wood slips,4 wood tablets,a wooden cup and a wooden gaming die have been uncovered. This work provides the opportunity to apply traditional field excavation theory to so-called “indoor excavations”   and to perform scientific analysis on slips. Through this work,the layout of bamboo slips of Qin is revealed,which is very important to the study of the order of the slips and the words. The slips are preserved quite well,and in relatively complete groupings,thus providing a key to the owner’s knowl- edge,rank,and identity.

In March of 2001,archaeologists carried out a small-scale excavation on the site. A mound of burnt red earth and five tombs of the Liangzhu Culture were discovered. The burial objects include pottery,jades,stone objects,and so on. This excavation revealed that the site is an altar and a cemetery complex of the Liangzhu Culture. The date of the tombs is in the middle Liangzhu Culture. This excavation unearthed a particularly fine group of pottery wares. Among them,there is a black pottery cup with a lid and a broad handle,which is one of the masterworks of the Liangzhu Culture.
