A wooden strip unearthed in fiscal 1997 from remains of the eighth-century Shigarakinomiya palace in Koka, Shiga Prefecture, was found to be inscribed with a pair of waka poems,

The poet has been tentatively identified:

Amazing that a 1mm thick strip of wood survived burial that long in the Japanese climate. And, it's absolutely astounding that ink remained readable on it for that long!

It's a l-o-n-g story, but, maybe someday I'll get around to writing down how (in an antique weapons shop way back on an out-of the way side street in Kyoto) I was presented with a bamboo fan bearing a hand-written inscription written and signed by Tojo Hideki (Generalissimo Tojo)...

I can’t imagine actually laying hands on a work of art that is so ancient. A tool or something utilitarian would be one thing, but a poem? Amazing.

The sense of connection with ones history and ones ancestors must be absolutely overwhelming for these archaeologists.
