There are up to 5 layers of coffins, classified by materials: stone, wood, copper, silver, and gold. Among them, the appearance of the golden coffin has attracted great attention from everyone.

 

More than ten years ago, a golden coffin was unearthed in Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province, China. Although we all know that the ancients paid great attention to the afterlife after death, but the appearance of such an all-gold coffin is extremely rare. However, after the coffin was dug up, experts at the scene were in no hurry to open it right away. They proceeded to find out the data related to the real secret of the coffin first.

The appearance of antiques and ancient tombs in modern China seems to have become a familiar topic in the archaeological world. The most commonly seen initial catalyst is probably the building restoration activities in this country.

It is known that more than ten years ago, the famous Long Tuyen temple in Son Tay was undergoing a major restoration. During the repair work, the builders here accidentally discovered a mysterious ancient tomb.

After receiving the news, Son Tay archaeologists quickly went to the scene to rescue the ancient tomb. When embarking on the exploration, the special thing they noticed is that this ancient tomb has a great difference from ordinary tombs.

There are up to 5 layers of coffins, classified by materials: stone, wood, copper, silver, and gold. Among them, the appearance of the golden coffin has attracted great attention from everyone.

This coffin is completely made of real gold, its upper part is also carved with many delicate patterns.

According to experts, this coffin is completely made of real gold, its upper part is also carved with many delicate patterns. After consulting relevant historical documents, experts all said that this golden coffin must have a certain connection with religious culture.

Although the ancients highly valued the afterlife, a coffin made entirely of gold is indeed still an extremely rare thing.

After all, in ancient society, the person who could afford a coffin made of pure gold would have to be someone who was richer or more powerful than others. Experts also predict that in this tomb will definitely find a lot of valuable historical and cultural relics.

During many previous archaeological excavations, some cultural relics were severely damaged due to the occurrence of oxidation.

Faced with that situation, many experts hope to uncover the mystery of the tomb’s owner by opening the golden coffin. However, when the experts brought the golden coffin back to the laboratory and conducted an openness test, they discovered that to open the golden coffin, they must first remove the special red silk bow tied on the coffin. golden talent.

After inspection, it was discovered that the age of this golden coffin falls around the Tang Dynasty. The Tang dynasty has a history of thousands of years, which means that if the red silk band on the golden coffin is broken, it will inevitably oxidize. Thus, the red silk on the golden coffin will also lose its precious historical value.

In fact, in the archaeological process, oxidation is a very common phenomenon. After all, cultural relics excavated from ancient tombs all have a history of hundreds of thousands of years, due to the long-term deep underground environment also makes it difficult for them to immediately adapt to the light and air conditions above. ground. During many previous archaeological excavations, some cultural relics were severely damaged due to the occurrence of oxidation. As for the development of Chinese historical research, these oxidized cultural relics also make experts very sad.

Gradually, along with the development of the times, experts have also realized the importance of protecting cultural relics. Today, if it is not absolutely necessary, experts will not open ancient tombs and excavate cultural relics in them. This shows that with the continuous development of the new era, the importance of protecting human cultural objects is also constantly increasing.

Faced with that situation, experts were forced to give up their desire to open the golden coffin. During the past 10 years, they also hope to be able to uncover the mystery inside the golden coffin with the help of special techniques. Although until now, experts have not been able to find a reasonable way to open the golden coffin, but everyone understands the root cause of this problem.

Archaeologists still hope that with the continuous development of science and technology, they will be able to find the secret inside the coffin one day. Until that time, the question of what was inside the coffin remained unanswered.

Before that, after preliminary analysis of this golden coffin, they could all realize that its value was very high, so if the conditions were not ripe, it would be an act of destruction. history.

From some previous archaeological activities, we can see that if cultural relics are not well preserved after excavation, they will also lose their original value due to various reasons. However, archaeologists still hope that with the continuous development of science and technology, they will be able to find the secret inside the coffin one day. Until that time, the question of what was inside the coffin remained unanswered.
