The Museum of Luoyang Eastern Zhou Royal Horse and Chariol Pils Introduction

I don’t know how many stories are buried in the beautiful central plains. Maybe it’s the most unsuitable place to move the earth, because there are countless historical sea sunk hooks under the ground. In the Eastern Zhou Dynasty, after King Ping of Zhou moved to Luoyi, the capital of Luoyang, after 515 years of glory, 25 emperors of all dynasties were buried here. There were more officials, gentry and rich people. How many peerless treasures should be buried in the underground of Luoyang for later generations? Where are the once brilliant treasures that have been influencing today’s heavy culture buried?

In 2002, Luoyang Municipal government planned to build a Modern Plaza “Heluo Culture Plaza” in the center of the ancient city, which integrates administration, commerce, finance and other functions. As a result, when excavating the land, within 16000 square meters, it successively excavated 18 pits of vehicles and horses in the Eastern Zhou Dynasty, especially one of which was 42 meters long and 7.2 meters wide, and even cleaned up one The ancient relics of six horses driving one cart also confirm the ancient saying that “emperor driving six, princes driving four” in Xia, Shang and Zhou dynasties. So “the Museum of Luoyang Eastern horizontal horse and characteristic PILS” was built at the original site. This has also caused a stir among Chinese cultural scholars and archaeologists all over the world.

Many history loving friends come to Luoyang to have a look at Longmen Grottoes and peonies. Maybe Longmen Grottoes are so famous that we can appreciate the smile of lushe Buddha without going to Luoyang, which will reduce our expectation; while peony, though beautiful, has a short flowering period, and many people feel sorry for missing the blooming flowers; in “the Museum of Luoyang Eastern Zhou Dynasty, we can feel that it came from the Eastern Zhou Dynasty Luxury and brilliance .

The whole Museum covers an area of more than 1700 square meters. As soon as it enters here, it gives people a feeling of seeing the “terracotta warriors and horses of the first emperor of Qin”. It is only a little smaller, but its history is far earlier than the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin. This is a special museum with the original site protection and exhibition, and the theme of the large-scale pit of chariots and horses in the Eastern Zhou Dynasty. The museum is divided into display area and large-scale horse pit exhibition area in the Eastern Zhou Dynasty.

There are also many dog bones in the pit. According to reports, these dogs may have been scattered when they were attacked at the beginning. Therefore, the dog bones are arranged in different shapes, scattered in different places, and even the traces of stones hitting the dog’s head can be seen. Some dogs may be the owner’s dogs, reluctant to let the owner go, ran under the carriage, and the buried people were buried in it. Looking at these horse bones and dog bones all over the pit, you can imagine the intense scenes when these animals were buried.

When we see the six huge horse bones in the pit, we not only wonder how majestic and magnificent the Eastern Zhou Dynasty was more than 2700 years ago, but also how powerful and magnificent the six vigorous horses were driving on the land of Luoyang in the car of Emperor Zhou. Now, these white horses have become bone and bone. Although the passage of time is so heartless, the history is forever solidified.

The Museum of Luoyang Eastern Zhou Royal horse and chariol PILS is also the only museum in China to be displayed on the basis of the original site. Through these past histories, Luoyang, as an ancient capital of the thirteen dynasties, is also shown to the world, with its long history and splendid material culture, which is impressive and memorable.
