Shaanxi is really a treasure!

According to media reports, recently in dabaozi village, Xixian New District, Shaanxi Province, archaeologists of the Shaanxi Provincial Academy of archaeology found a well preserved Han Dynasty tomb, which was full of grain!


It is reported that more than 100 precious cultural relics have been unearthed from this Han Dynasty tomb, including gilded bronzes, jades, ironware, etc. What's more surprising is that in the Western niche of the tomb,We found a very rare large pottery warehouse, about 1 meter wide and 80 cm high, with a huge volume. In addition, there is a full warehouse of grain in the warehouse, which has been condensed into pieces.

According to the analysis,These grains should be millet, commonly known as millet, which is what we call millet now.

In the Han Dynasty and even prehistoric period, millet has always been the staple food of people in the northern region, and it is also one of the staple food up to now.

So many millet are preserved in such a large pottery warehouse and used as tombs, which shows that the agricultural technology at that time was quite developed and the production efficiency was quite high.

In the next step, archaeologists will also conduct carbon 14 detection on these millet to further analyze the relevant information.

Tian duo, an expert in plant archaeology at the school of cultural heritage of Northwestern University, said,This is the largest Han Dynasty pottery warehouse he has ever seen in his archaeological career.

At present, archaeologists have cleaned up and extracted the relics in the tombs, and established a team of field archaeology, cultural relic protection, scientific and technological archaeology to carry out further protection and Research on the unearthed cultural relics.
