According to Wang Zhigao, a professor at Nanjing Normal University

Archaeological excavation and conservation display of the two mausoleums of the South Tang Dynasty

There should be two phases

Slide to see all

The first phase was from the 1950s to 2010. In 1950, a field archaeology team from the Nanjing Museum came to Zutang Mountain, where they found two large ancient tombs with lifelike statues of warriors, relief carvings of two dragons playing with beads, and beautifully detailed drawings of the heavens, etc. Experts confirmed that the owners of the two tombs were the founding emperor of the Southern Tang Dynasty, Li Lee, and his empress, and the middle lord, Li Jing, and his empress. The two tombs were identified by experts as the founding emperor of the Southern Tang Dynasty, Li Yi, and his empress, Li Jing, the middle lord, and his empress. However, only the two tombs on Zutang Mountain were excavated, and basically no work was carried out on the ground mausoleum buildings and other underground tombs.

The second stage is after 2010. 2010 coincided with the 60th anniversary of the excavation of the South Tang Two Tombs, the Nanjing Archaeological Research Institute and the South Tang Two Tombs Cultural Relics Protection Management Institute decided to jointly organize a team to carry out a comprehensive archaeological exploration of the mausoleum where the South Tang Two Tombs are located. In this archaeological work, within the scope of the mausoleum area, another 7.2-meter-long, 5.6-meter-wide mysterious tomb with an auricular chamber was discovered. Prof. Wang Zhigao, the leader of the excavation, believes that this tomb is the queen of Li Yu, the queen of the Great Zhou, which is highly probable.

"The second archaeological work, time conditions are limited, we just do exploration of the mausoleum around the South Tang Dynasty two mausoleums, found the mausoleum wall, mausoleum door and other important remains. But I think the discovered mausoleum wall is small in scale, and I feel that it is only the inner city of the mausoleum, and there should also be a larger scale of the outer city." Wang Zhigao said he hoped to start a larger, more comprehensive and systematic field archaeological survey and exploration of the South Tang Dynasty Mausoleum in Zutang Mountain as soon as possible.

According to the cultural relics department of Nanjing Jiangning District, theJiangning District will continue to promote the archaeological exploration and survey work around the two mausoleums in South Tang DynastyIn addition, we will try our best to solve the many mysteries that currently exist, and display the results of the archaeological excavations over the past few years, which will be open to the public. At the same time, the exhibition displays in the Second Mausoleum of the Southern Tang Dynasty will be remodeled and upgraded to enhance the audience's participation and satisfaction.
