Catalogue of an exhibition at the Capital Museum in Beijing being the first public showing of the extraordinary and highly-important recent archaeological finds from the Han dynasty Haihunhou site near Nanchang in China's Jiangxi province. The very well-preserved tomb excavated was that of Liu He, the grandson of the Han dynasty Emperor Wu. Liu He ruled China for a mere 27 days, was then deposed and made a Marquis, the first ruler of the short-lived Haihun kingdom. The tomb was intact and is, not least, remarkable for the large amounts of large round and hoof-shaped gold coins found within, together with some 2 million bronze coins - a good number shown in the exhibition. There are also gold-inlaid bronze bells, an exquisite pair of small inlaid bronze shields with designs of animals and birds, small jades, bronzes, lacquer, two goose-shaped 'smoke-catching' lamps and much more of a very high quality. The exhibition showed a total of some 300 items from the tomb, many illustrated here. The catalogue also shows the excavation process. Illustrated throughout in colour. Text in Chinese.
