"Yanzi Chunqiu" once said: A sage has a lot of worries, but he must lose something. Throughout the ages, human beings have never been perfect. For thousands of years, there have been countless tragedies caused by misjudgment. Although such tragedies are deplorable, the experience is still invaluable.
As one of the four ancient civilizations in the world, Chinese culture is extensive and profound, and has a long history. Because of this, in modern society, the development of archeology has also attracted the attention of many people. Perhaps in the eyes of many people, the development of Chinese archaeology has been smooth sailing, but in fact, due to the limitations of ideological level and technical level, Chinese archaeological experts have also gone through many detours.
Once, the famous writer and archaeological expert Guo Moruo dealt a heavy blow to the development of Chinese archaeology because of his wrong decision. At that time, he insisted on excavating Dingling, which caused countless cultural relics to be damaged. Today, this archaeological tragedy has made many people sigh. So why did Guo Moruo make such a move? What kind of secret is hidden behind the excavation of Dingling?
As we all know, in the development of modern society, China was once in a critical situation due to the impact of war, which also made China's development in various fields stalemate.
However, thanks to the joint efforts of the Chinese people, with the founding of New China, China's development in various fields has returned to the right track, and the life of the Chinese people has also been securely guaranteed.
At the beginning of the founding of New China, experts in various fields in China hoped to make some achievements this morning, and archaeological experts represented by Guo Moruo tried their best to excavate as many ancient tombs as possible, so as to realize the in-depth understanding of history. Research.
In ancient Chinese society, influenced by the rich burial culture, generally speaking, there must be countless precious cultural relics in the tombs of dignitaries, and there are countless precious treasures in the tombs of emperors. The gaze is placed in the more mysterious emperor's tomb.
In the mid-1950s, Guo Moruo began to study the imperial tombs of the Ming Dynasty. The reason why Guo Moruo has a special liking for the imperial tombs of the Ming Dynasty is also because of the importance he attaches to many classics of the Ming Dynasty. According to folklore, many lost Ming Dynasty classics were buried in the imperial tomb, even including the "Yongle Dadian". If the imperial tomb can be opened, it will certainly provide corresponding assistance for the study of the history of the Ming Dynasty in China.
Afterwards, Guo Moruo began to draft a report on the excavation of Changling. When the news came out, many experts also held objections to it. In the eyes of everyone, Chinese archaeological technology at that time was not yet mature, and if the Changling Tomb was excavated rashly, it would probably cause damage to the cultural relics in the Changling Tomb.
Although during this period of time, Guo Moruo insisted on excavating the Changling Mausoleum, but due to technical limitations, Chinese archaeologists failed to find the entrance to the Changling Mausoleum. above.
When the news of China's decision to excavate Dingling Mausoleum was released, it caused a huge sensation in the international arena. At that time, many Western scholars even hoped to participate in the excavation process of Dingling Mausoleum.
Due to the relatively small scale of Dingling Mausoleum, the difficulty of excavation is not very great. Afterwards, through the continuous efforts of Guo Moruo and others, the entrance of Dingling Mausoleum was finally determined.
However, because the experts did not have a lot of excavation experience before, everyone failed to realize the difference in oxygen content between the underground palace and the outside world. When the door of the Dingling underground palace was opened, a large amount of oxygen poured into the underground palace, causing many cultural relics to be severely oxidized.
For a while, countless cultural relics were lost. Facing the scene in front of them, the experts present felt at a loss. However, Guo Moruo and others made up their minds to continue excavating. In the end, with the efforts of Guo Moruo and others, many cultural relics in Dingling were brought to the world.
Although the present life of these cultural relics is amazing, because the experts are not yet familiar with the protection methods of cultural relics, many cultural relics taken out of the underground palace have been damaged to varying degrees, which has also brought great damage to the cause of Chinese history research. sorry.
Based on the impact of this incident, Chinese leaders decided not to allow archaeologists to excavate undamaged ancient imperial tombs. With the help of this policy, other imperial tombs in China have been preserved intact and have not been damaged. external damage.
Although Guo Moruo's literary achievements are relatively high, his mistakes cannot be ignored in the excavation of Dingling.
In fact, in the development of social archaeology in China, such mistakes have appeared many times. Based on the influence of these failed experiences, the world has been able to realize the importance of cultural relics protection, which also provides better help for the development of Chinese historical research.
In modern society, the level of technology in various fields in China has improved, but to this day, the true colors of many imperial tombs are still unable to be revealed to the world.
Perhaps in the days to come, when China's archaeological excavation technology has been further improved, the imperial mausoleumMany of the secrets will also be revealed to the world.
