What are the breakthroughs in the latest research results of the Chinese Civilization Exploration Project?
What are the breakthroughs in the latest progress and research results of the fifth phase of the Chinese civilization exploration project released on the 9th? Let's listen to the analysis and interpretation of Wang Wei, a member of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
Wang Wei, member of the Faculty of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences: In recent years, several important sites have made important new discoveries, such as Niuheliang, which expanded the scale of the whole at that time, and Lingjiatan also made important discoveries. These two important sites are expected to become important supports for the next stage of demonstration into early civilization. Therefore, I think that a series of new archaeological discoveries are the most important achievements in recent years, because only these new archaeological discoveries can make our understanding new.
What is the significance of continuing to explore the origins of Chinese civilization?
What is the significance of our continuous exploration of the origin of Chinese civilization in recent years? Go ahead and listen to the experts' analysis.
Wang Wei, member of the Faculty of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences: We must sort out the process, causes, background, mechanism, and path of the crystallization of Chinese civilization, and continue to write a genealogy for the Chinese nation. When did our Chinese civilization come into being? The traditional "three elements" that are popular abroad -- metallurgy, writing, and the city -- were summarized by European and American scholars on the basis of the Egyptian civilization and the civilization of the two river basins, and there are many people in other civilizations in the world who do not conform to the three elements. We hope to gradually show the way of the development of Chinese civilization by discovering how Chinese civilization can understand the long history, the glorious extent it has reached, and its contribution to mankind. There are also some major discoveries that are second to none in the same period in the world, which have enabled Chinese people, especially young people, to enhance their understanding and recognition of Chinese civilization, and enhance their ambition, backbone and confidence to be a Chinese. The greatest significance of our research lies in this, and it is also to show the world that our 5,000-year-old Chinese civilization is not a claim or a myth, but a solid history that has actually happened.
