The new boundary-crossing approach on Ancient Chinese Slip and Tablet Documents (in Japanese)

About the Project

Project term: April, 2020–March, 2023

Through a joint reading of the administrative documents unearthed from an ancient well at the Liye-site, this project seeks to acquire a systematic understanding of the daily prefectural administration business in Qianling Prefecture, which belonged to the Dongting commandery in the Qin era. The finances and military of the Qin dynasty, which unified the Chinese hemisphere for the first time in history, heavily depended on prefectural administration for resident registration, requisition of human and material resources, and state-run manufacturing of weaponry and producer goods. Therefore, understanding the daily regional administrative processes could elucidate new insights into the deep structures of the Early Chinese Empire.
