Life 2,000 years ago the Emperor of China in the northwest inland eat Shanghai taste it? The answer is yes. Researchers found that, in the capital of China's Han dynasty emperor Chang'an (now Xi'an) can not only enjoy the famed Silk Road of western interests, but also can enjoy the sea from the East, snails, clams and other seafood. Well-known animal archaeologists, Hu Songmei Shaanxi Provincial Archaeological Research Institute researcher, said: "Through the Han Yangling Pei Zangkeng skeletons unearthed part of the animal study, we found a marine snails and clams. Binding on behalf of the Pei Zangkeng Table or a symbol of the official in charge of the emperor is too diet, indicating that these exotic marine animals has entered the Emperor's recipes, as its daily seafood. " It is understood that animal specimens in the 43 scientists found at least 29 individual animals, belonging to 18 kinds of animals, of which four kinds of marine animals, namely, clams, snails flat jade, beads intended to keep snails and crabs vaginal discharge shoots Lo. Xi'an is inland marine animals how come? Well-known experts in the Silk Road, China Cheng Yong Ge, chief editor of Cultural Relics, these marine animals from the east coast was probably dedicated to the royal gun Seafood does not rule out the possibility of trade as a commodity. "These snails are marine economy Pui and mollusks, especially the clam meat is very delicious enjoy the" best in the world fresh, "the famous, and some snail shells, such as vaginal discharge also watch the value of bamboo shoots. This inland areas for research Seafood trade or use, will undoubtedly important. "She said. These conclusions mainly due to the rapid development of the archaeological discipline. And originated in the fields of geology, archeology, compared to today's technology has been developed archaeological archaeological phase, in addition to the archaeological field to meet the requirements of pre- In addition, it requires more laboratory work and multi-disciplinary participation. For example, to obtain specimens of the marine animals and research to benefit from the Archaeological Field Archaeology under the guidance of the animal after the laboratory work, through the study of ancient heritage Address animal remains unearthed, revealing ancient people choosing food in his lifetime, hunting, breeding poultry and livestock and other aspects of economic life and cultural life of the profiles. Students have a good, death will enjoy Yan. Located in the inland northwest China Yangling is to create a Golden Age of Chinese history the Han emperor and his wife of the cemetery, archaeologists since 1998 to its east part of the Pei Zangkeng Mausoleum Were excavated, of which three pit and found a lot of food remains, animal bones, clay seal unearthed proof of its officials in charge of the emperor diet - too much government related. Hu Songmei said that currently the major animal specimens studied Is a Pei Zangkeng unearthed. In addition to four kinds of marine animals and post-invasion Rattus norvegicus, the study found that other animals, including rabbits, cats, foxes, leopards, sheep, cattle, frogs, mussels Li, Jia Li mussels, deer and elk, First kind and enrich people's diet for two thousand years ago the Han royal recognition. Ancient Chinese diet is very particular about the royal family's diet is not sloppy. Point of view from the diet, food animals, both marine products, fresh products, but also a variety of domestic and wild terrestrial mammals. These dynamics Material is no doubt the emperor at the time for people to show some recipes, reflecting the diversity of their diet and with the reasonable. Let the experts in particular care about is that these animals except for a few unearthed the clams, snails, etc. will not be produced locally, most animals are domestic animals at the Weihe River basin, especially the habits of freshwater mussels on water quality Lai The requirement is very high. Hu Songmei said: "Korea has long been in Weihe River Basin mussels can not find now, their existence shows that the capital of two thousand years ago, Chang was indeed lush land, but also to some extent in support of the Han Yangling" entirely different "in Feng Shui site selection requirements. " Then the cats, foxes and leopards have also entered the royal family diet? Experts believe that some of Shanglin Parkland emperor in the Han Dynasty during the greater development and become kings and ministers, especially the emperor's hunting land, "playing the game" or even as Xia wind for the children's behavior. "Fox, from hunting panther is no doubt, as the source of the cat, as the royal kitchen is likely to be used in the anti-rodent. Interestingly, the cat eventually did not defend, they now become our research with the specimens." Hu Song May laughed. Why is fish not found it? Experts believe that, due to limitations of space to explore and present, of the three preservation of the Pei Zangkeng animal bones were in a pit of scientific research and found that these animals do not Can represent all the royal diet. Han history books are set: "Shanglin Parkland pool in Kunming, Ho Chi, Mu Zhu pool first, take turtles, to the cults. With more than one thousand turtles, I give too much government." "The excavation did not see the animal specimens and turtles, then we can only draw conclusions about the royal family a meal. In particular, can not be not representative of the other two Peizang Keng, but could not come to the emperor recipes There is no conclusion. It is obvious that only the existing animal specimens, was enough to draw the Emperor's rich recipes. "Hu Songmei said.
