China publishes research results on Koguryo Kingdom ruins

www.chinaview.cn 2004-07-01 22:53:01

CHANGCHUN, July 1 (Xinhuanet) -- Chinese specialists have published four academic papers to report their latest achievements in research on the site of capital cities and tombs of the ancient Koguryo Kingdom of China.

The academic papers are the first complete documents on Koguryo issue ever written by Chinese. Before this, the only archaeological report about the Koguryo Kingdom ruins in the world was published in Japan in the 1930s, according to Jin Xudong, head of the Jilin Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology.

The four academic papers, with pictures and verified data, are compiled by Chinese archaeological workers who had participated in excavating the Koguryo Kingdom ruins, most of which are scattered in Ji'an City of northeast China's Jilin Province and Huanren County of the neighboring Liaoning Province.

The Koguryo Kingdom ruins was inscribed into the World Heritage List on Thursday.

Published by the Cultural Relics Publishing House and with 4,000 copies in circulation, the academic papers feature Wunu Mountain City, Guonei City, Wandu Mountain City, and the imperial tombs of Koguryo Kingdom in Ji'an, respectively.

"These documents present the readers with a complete and reliable information about the Koguryo Kingdom ruins based on materials and data collected via modern high-technology such as GPS and unified standards used for studying Koguryo Kingdom ruins," said Jin.

China has the richest Koguryo Kingdom ruins resources in the world. In Ji'an City alone, some 10,000 tombs belonging to the Koguryo Kingdom have been found in 75 places.

Professor Geng Tiehua with the Koguryo Kingdom Ruins Research Center of Tonghua Normal College of Jilin Province, said: "though Chinese researchers are late with the research on the Koguryo Kingdom subject, the historical site has been well protected inside the country."

Established in 37 BC and destroyed in 668 AD, the Koguryo Kingdom lasted for 705 years and played a big role in the development of Northeast Asia.

Wei Cuncheng, a professor of history with the Jilin University and expert on Koguryo issue, said, "The Koguryo regime was a regime established by ethnic groups in northern China some 2,000 years ago, representing an important part of Chinese culture." Enditem

"The Koguryo regime was a regime established by ethnic groups in northern China some 2,000 years ago, representing an important part of Chinese culture."

In this area of the world, ethnic groups usually means Caucasians or mixed race people.

It also means NE Asians considered to be barbarians by the Chinese.

Those folks would never be confused with Europeans.

BTW, Chinese are simply a variation in your basic Caucasion type anyway.

This is a picture of pottery shards from the Freemont People site in Utah that the guy kept hidden for so many years. I thought you'd appreciate the spirals on them.

I still ask the question...why are they called Freemont People and not Freemont Indians?

"Most interesting link:

Thanks! Some of the research mentioned sounds interesting though I see some things that seem controversial/speculative--i.e., the statements on the classification/origins of the Korean language (I believe this is in dispute), on King Chi Wu's activity in 2700 BC (no historical foundation for this IMO since we have no written documents anywhere near that old), and on the Soviet-era verification of the Go-Chosun period (for the same reason: no written documents). The pyramids which the Chinese government won't allow researchers to investigate sound intriguing.

Thanks, the spirals do interest me. Wish I had that book handy to compare the specific patterns. Offhand the style looks slightly different than the version found in China and Central America. I need to get you some pictures--I have one, will scan that in later when I get a chance.

PING This is a "Gods, Graves, Glyphs" -- Archeology/Ancient Cultures/Artifacts/Antiquities, etc. PING list.

Farmfriend who kept the GGG left FR and we don't have her ping list.

I am trying to re-create/create a ping list for the above topic.

I assembled this list by going through some related threads, and you either posted on them, or someone pinged you to them, so I am assuming there is some interest.

I apologize to those who don't want to be on this list.

PLEASE FREEPMAIL ME, if you want on or off this list.

If you want off, I will take your name off immediately and won't bother you any more.

Hopefully in a few days those who want off, will get off and we'll only have those who really do want to be on it.

I just had to start somewhere.

If you want to see other articles in this group, here is the link, which lists them:

Gods, Graves, Glyphs

Anthropology and Archaeology stories at Yahoo

After a couple of days, I will shorten my “PING Post”, please bear with me in the interim.

Also, if you see a thread related to this, please ping a post to “ *Gods, Graves, Glyphs ” and to me, that will add it to the group and lets me know I should ping the list.

Thanks.

GPS is everywhere and is a major help in surveying archaeology sites. But the major new tool is GIS. Besides being a database with all the bells and whistles, the GIS has considerable3-D cartographic capability. The days of sketchy line drawings of excavations are nearly at an end and we can link images such as pottery shards to the map and link those to other databases, probably to Internet search engines, too, if we want. Freemont Peoples should be a click away from Korea or Chinese Pyramids or Egyptian mummies with tobacco in their hair.

" Freemont Peoples should be a click away from Korea or Chinese Pyramids or Egyptian mummies with tobacco in their hair."

Funny you say that. When I saw the map below, that was linked in one of the articles above, I thought...Drug routes. FReeper Fedora and I have talked about this possible drug route before.

See the map in post #12.

Think we'll live long enough to see some arrows radiating out from Sundaland?

I think you could easily incorporate them with this map. It is increasingly likely there were three migrations into the Americas.

The proto-Australians

The proto-Indo-Europeans

The Asian AmerInds

This map gets the last two but misses those who hugged the coast coming out of Africa into Southeast Asia. With the interest in the people of Tierra Del Fuego, perhaps the last shoe will drop????????????

"It is increasingly likely there were three migrations into the Americas. "

I think there were many more but, most were small compared to those you listed.

Manchuria used to be part of Korea long time ago. Then China took it. This must be grounds for reparations. Anyways, I am happy with my life here in America. Manchuria has lots of old Korean buildings. Many Koreans live in Manchuria. Lake Baikal is where the modern Korean came from. The lake really holds significance to me. LOL.
