[Explanation] On January 21, the Baodun Site Exhibition Hall in Xinjin District, Chengdu City, Sichuan Province opened, and the "Root of Tianfu" Baodun Site and Baodun Cultural Exhibition were also open to the public at the same time.

  It is reported that the Baodun site is the earliest and largest prehistoric city site in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River in China.

In 1995, with the confirmation of Baodun Ancient City, the first Neolithic ancient city discovered in Chengdu Plain, Chengdu Plain finally found the "dawn of civilization" about 4,500 years ago.

Subsequently, archaeologists successively discovered 7 ancient cities including Pixian Ancient City, Wenjiang Yufu City, and Dujiangyan Mangcheng, and proposed the "Baodun Culture", the first Neolithic culture in the Chengdu Plain. Approved.

So far, people's understanding of human activities in the Chengdu Plain has advanced for about 800 years. Therefore, the Chengdu Plain is considered to be one of the multiple centers of the origin of Chinese civilization.

  The Baodun Culture is the origin of the rice-growing civilization in the Chengdu Plain, as well as the source of the ancient Shu civilization. The discovery of the Baodun Site, Sanxingdui Site, and Jinsha Site has proved that Chengdu was the center of ancient civilization in the ancient Shu area, and the ancient Shu civilization was the center of Chinese civilization. The "Yuan", an important element in the multi-integrated structure of civilization, is an outstanding representative of the bronze civilization and urban civilization in the Yangtze River Basin during the Xia and Shang dynasties, and occupies a very prominent position in the history of Chinese civilization.

  [Explanation] In the Baodun Site Exhibition Hall, which opened on the same day, the exhibits such as pottery and stone tools, ivory sticks, and carbonized rice buried in the ground for about 4,500 years tell the "infant" period of the ancient Shu civilization, that is, the ancient Shu during the Baodun culture period. The ancestors went deep into the history of the Chengdu Plain.

At the same time, through new means such as 3D projection equipment and multimedia interactive display screens, the exhibitions with rich content and various forms have also displayed the excavation process and research results of the Baodun site in detail and intuitively.

  Our new attempt is to directly convert the archaeological data into an exhibition language acceptable to the audience, and tell everyone about it, or vividly tell everyone the history of the earliest stage of the Chengdu Plain of Baodun Culture.

So I think this pavilion is a challenge and a new attempt for us.

We used a lot of vivid multimedia materials to tell the history of our entire Baodun ancient city one by one.

A change course of our entire Baodun cultural prehistoric city site group, and how to build city walls.

I believe that if the audience comes to this exhibition hall, through our short films, they can clearly and clearly feel what the ancestors of Baodun did on our land (on) the Chengdu Plain.

  [Explanation] Tang Miao introduced that the theme of this exhibition is "The Roots of Tianfu", which not only hopes to lead the public to explore the origin of ancient Shu civilization.

It is also an attempt to revitalize and inherit archaeological culture.

The public can not only "contact" Baodun culture across time and space on the spot, but also experience the daily life of archaeological work.

Tang Miao said that this exhibition is just a starting point, and more archaeological museums and archaeological exhibitions will appear in front of the public in the future.

  The place where we are now is a place called the Baodun Site Archaeological Workstation.

When you come here, what you see is not just a pavilion, in addition to this pavilion, you can also see bits and pieces of our archaeological work.

So when you come to us, one is to understand Baodun culture and the other is to understand archaeological work.

I believe that after this museum has a good response, we will definitely launch more museums, more archaeological museums, and more archaeological exhibitions one after another.

This is our first exhibition of Chengdu Archaeology, and you will see the second and third exhibitions of Chengdu Archaeology in the future.
