City Cultural Relics and Archaeology Institute experts: Only some ancient city bricks can not be determined to be Yongfengmen ruins 2012-08-29

 

Is the Yongfengmen site discovered at the intersection of Yongfeng Road and Wangjing Road? Yesterday morning, experts from the Ningbo Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology rushed to the scene. After a detailed review, Wang Lijun of the Municipal Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology said: "Only by some ancient city bricks, it is impossible to conclude that this is the site of Yongfengmen." Then he said: "Even if it is the site of Yongfengmen, then the backfill is actually The best protection for it.” Yesterday, the reporter came to the construction site again, and the work here is still in order. Only a few passing citizens began to stop to talk: I heard that there was a suspected Yongfengmen site. At the construction site, heavy ancient city bricks are still visible everywhere. After careful examination, Wang Lijun believed that these ancient city bricks do not mean that this is the Yongfengmen site. "This kind of green bricks may also be bricks for tombs." Wang Lijun told reporters that "the period of the Republic of China, this area is relatively desolate, there are some civilian tombs. They also like to use similar bricks to make tombs." In fact, in these Song Dynasty In the city bricks, there are also a few pieces of Ming Dynasty city bricks. Cheng Jianjie, who has studied the ancient city bricks, told reporters that he had discovered a piece of Ming Dynasty city brick with the words "Ming Zhou Wei Hongwu Five Years". "This piece should be a city wall brick." Wang Lijun said. However, in his view, it is quite normal for this area to leave the ancient city wall tiles, because "in the Republic of China, the six city gates of Ningbo and the city walls were all demolished, and most of these wall tiles were used twice. Many people took these City bricks, urban paving will also use such wall tiles." Yesterday, Wang Lijun confirmed to reporters that according to the ancient map of Ningbo, Yongfengmen is indeed in this area. "In fact, when the power bureau started construction, we also looked forward to discovering the site of Yongfengmen, but it was regrettable that it failed to do so." Wang Lijun looked carefully at the excavated soil. "In fact, whether it is an ancient city brick or a wooden pile foundation." They are all seriously disturbed." That is to say, these things have been moved, so "this is not the original location of them." Wang Lijun said, "The gate of Yongfengmen is not big, to confirm its specific location." It is not an easy task. In fact, he can also understand the public's concern about the site of Yongfengmen. "But archaeology is a rigorous empirical science. We can't rely on a few inscription bricks and a few pile foundations. It is concluded that the site of Yongfengmen is here.” Cheng Jianjie once described to the reporter what he saw with his own eyes. “There is a wall of ancient city bricks exposed in the earth, about 3 meters long, like the ancient city wall.” Just the day before yesterday In the afternoon, the wall was no longer visible because of the backfill of the soil. Since the ancient city bricks cannot prove the existence of the Yongfengmen site, can this wall be an example? Wang Lijun said: "A wall of the ancient city bricks can not explain anything." Subsequently, he said: "Even if it is really the site of Yongfengmen, then backfilling is actually the best protection for it." "At present, we have cultural relics protection. The consensus is that unless there is destructive construction, the cultural relics remain the safest underground," said Wang Lijun. Yesterday, the staff of the Ningbo Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology brought a piece of pile foundation excavated from the site back to the Institute for further study.
