During an excavatio上海千花网 wooden slip was une

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

own’s past that people today are able to get a bigger picture of the rise and fall of Qin rulers.

Archaeologists and historians view the significance of the Liye slips rivalin

g that of the discovery of Qin’s Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, in 1974.

Beijing’s ‘green lung’上海419ital breathing space

Covering 608 hectares, the park is home to 208 different wild animal species, including the yellow-bellie

d weasel and hedgehogs, along with numerous types of birds. Tourists visit the venue throughout the year.上海419

According to the Olympic Park Management Committee, protecting the ecos

上海419女神会所ystem is the top priority, and the park is designed to act as Beijing’s “green lung”-a

n area for leisure and entertainment that meets the increasing demand from local residents for green space.

When the park was completed in June 2008, the proportion of forest area上海419

in Beijing rose to 67 percent and carbon sequestration-a process by which carb

on dioxide is removed from the atmosphere and held in solid or liquid form-reached 4,763 metric tons per ye

上海419女神会所ar. The park releases 5,208 tons of oxygen annually, according to the management committee.

As dusk falls at the park, young men play basketball on outdoor courts, retirees dance in large grou

ps and families use the walkways to exercise. Lovers often sit along the trails, listening to guitar players.上海419

Since 2014, Zhang Yu, 40, an illustrator at a nature and geographical magazine in Beijing for young readers, has spent more than

上海419女神会所100 nights in the park during summer and autumn, searching with a flashlight for signs of hedgehogs.

He even considered bringing a tent to the park late at night to ensure he had sufficient time to track the creatures.

According to Zhang, untended land in the park provides the perfect hab上海419

itat for hedgehogs, and they usually rest and sleep on the edges of grassy areas.

Wang Zhou, 60, from Beijing, who has been a keen bird watcher since 1996, said, “W

上海419女神会所e are lucky to have Olympic Forest Park as one of the areas to observe birds’ behavior.”

Wang, who worked in finance before retiring, said she used to watch birds to ease the pressure of work.

“Every time I saw the birds, especially some new species that sudd上海419

enly appeared, I felt a sense of satisfaction and my spirits quickly rose,” she said.

Wang has also watched birds at other parks in Beijing, such as the Old Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven.上海419女神会所

“Compared with other places, Olympic Forest Park has bushy shrubs an

d untrimmed plants, providing a better environment for wildlife,” she said.
