Liangzhu Museum re压博娱乐登入开户419opens to public in Hangzhou

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,压博娱乐登入开户419女神会所

after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of

压博娱乐登入开户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压博娱乐登入开户419

ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad

压博娱乐登入开户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”.压博娱乐登入开户419

After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.

压博娱乐登入开户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.压博娱乐登入开户419

Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje

压博娱乐登入开户419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.

“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level

sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.压博娱乐登入开户419品茶微信

New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.

Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien

t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.

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.

President underlines two-way cooperation, strategic coordination

China and Turkey should enhance mutual strategic trust and respect each other’s core interests

and major concerns on such issues as sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.

Xi made the remark while meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Previously, Xi hosted a welcoming ceremony for Erdogan.

Erdogan said that Turkey firmly supports the one-China policy, and that it is a fact that the people of all ethnicities in Xinjian

g are leading a happy life amid China’s development and prosperity. Turkey will not allow anybody to sow dissension among the two countries, he said.

Noting that both China and Turkey are important emerging markets and developin

g countries, Xi said it is of great significance for them to enhance strategic cooperation.

The two countries also should strengthen strategic coordination, consolidate the politica

l foundation of the China-Turkey strategic cooperation and cooperative relationship, a

nd ensure that the bilateral relations always operate on a healthy and stable track, Xi said.

China appreciates that Erdogan has reaffirmed his commitment many times to not allow any forces to carry out anti-Chinese or separatist activities in Turkey, Xi said.

China attaches great importance to Turkey’s stance of supporting China’s fight against te

rrorism, Xi said, adding that China would like to enhance their anti-terrorism cooperation.

Xi said the two sides should enhance connection of development strategies and deepen practical cooperation. Hailing Turkey as an important partner for join

tly building the Belt and Road, Xi said that China would like to speed up connecting the Belt and Road with Turkey’s Middle Corridor plan, and pro

mote the cooperation in areas including trade, investment, science, energy, infrastructure and major projects.
