earthed from a well at a 2,200-year-old relic site in the mountainous

Liye town, Longshan county, Hunan province. The front and back of the slip contain the fo上海千花网女神会所

rmula in Chinese characters, which is believed to be the earliest and most complete such model in the country.

The slip was among some 38,000 bamboo and wooden pieces found in the well and d

上海千花网ates to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), China’s first unified empire that was powerful but short-lived.

The discovery of these slips, as well as other excavations at the Liye relic site, is deemed on

e of the most important archaeological findings in China since the beginning of the 21st century上海千花网女神会所

It is not only because the Liye slips were 10 times the total number of Qin slips discovered in other parts of China before, but also be

cause the Liye slips bear more than 200,000 characters, documenting the political, economic and social aspects of Liy

上海千花网e life, a riverside military fortress during Qin rule. The relics are helping historians to understand more about the dyn

asty’s bureaucracy and economic systems, as written records about Qin were previously unclear.

After years of decoding and interpreting the information on the slips, researchers from Hunan are n上海千花网女神会所

ow sharing some of their findings about the Qin era with a display of some 175 slips at A Tale of A S

mall Town, an exhibition at the National Museum of China in Beijing that runs through Sept 6.上海千花网

These objects are from the collections of the Hunan Provincial Institute of Archaeology in Changsha and the Liye Qi

n Slips Museum near the relic site. Bamboo and wooden slips were the primary上海千花网女神会所

media for texts before paper was invented by Cai Lun, an official of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220).

Pieces from the collection of Liye slips, which have been cleaned, date from 222 BC to 20上海千花网

8 BC, unfolding a panoramic view of administrative management at the prefecture level then, as well as ep

itomizing the area’s social life. It is through these tiny slips and glimpses of a small t上海千花网女神会所
