This newspaper news (reporter ye xiaoyan) originally can only in the literature and style thunder drawings to understand the appearance of the city, through archaeological excavation slowly three-dimensional plump up. Reporters learned yesterday that after half a year of archaeological work, the first phase of the first 500 square meters of archaeological excavation has been completed, the \"garden in the city\" south gate area has a general outline, experts also found a different place from the existing mine drawing records.
The Acropolis is a city-style temple complex specially opened in Old Summer Palace, named after the ancient Indian Acropolis, home to the first Buddhist temple in the history of Buddhism. However, in 1860, after the British and French forces occupied Old Summer Palace, the city's large number of Buddhist statues and various furnishings were ransacked, the loss is incalculable. With the change of time, the site is buried by the residue or garbage, completely cannot see the original appearance.
From June 5 to December 10 last year, the Beijing Institute of Cultural Relics carried out the first archaeological excavation of the site, with an area of 500 square meters, clearing out a section of the walls of the south gate, the east and west sides of the south gate and a section of the Ma Dao, the royal road inside and outside the south gate, the east and west sides of the gate and a section of the culvert under the south gate.
For the grand view of Old Summer Palace, people mainly rely on the literature and the design patterns of the \"style thunder\" family to understand, the same is true of the city, before the archaeological excavation, archaeologists can only use \"style thunder\" patterns to speculate on the appearance of the city, and these materials as an important basis for archaeological work. However, in the course of archaeology, archaeologists also found some of the difference with the pattern of mine drawings, such as outside the south gate, archaeologists found the city gate on either side of the value of the house, as well as the city gate on both sides of the base. \"But in the pattern of mine, the position of the value room is not like this.
