Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.
It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,乐动体育,乐动体育登录419女神会所
after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.
The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.
The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ乐动体育,乐动体育登录419
ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”
Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.乐动体育,乐动体育登录419
After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led
by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.乐动体育,乐动体育登录419
Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje
乐动体育,乐动体育登录419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.

sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.乐动体育,乐动体育登录419品茶微信

More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o
f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.
The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult
ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s
ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.
In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE
SCO to compete for recognition as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2019.
