Dethroned after 27 days, the shortest reign among Western Han emperors, Liu He (92-59 B.C.), master of the Haihunhou Tomb, was banished as a commoner, and later allowed to reside near a lake and given the title of the Marquis of Haihun. He died in his early 30s, reports People's Daily Online. Its reporting team visited the site and interviewed a leading researcher.
Such vicissitudes might have deprived his life of imperial glory, but the relics unearthed from his tomb tell a different story, revealing a dynasty's grandeur.
The tomb near Nanchang, capital of east China's Jiangxi Province, turns out to be the best-preserved Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - 24 AD) cemetery ever found, with the most integrate structure, distinct layout and complete sacrificial system.
One of China's top ten archaeological discoveries in 2015, the tomb has yielded the largest number of relics boasting of the most variety and the finest craftsmanship in Jiangxi.
Among a raft of relics including gold, bronze, and jade artifacts, archaeologists discovered a broken lacquer "screen" in the main chamber of the tomb and restored two portraits, one of which is believed to be the earliest portrait of Confucius ever found in China.
Also unearthed were more than 5,000 pieces of bamboo slips of Confucian classics, indicating the prevalence of Confucius' teachings among the royal more than 2,000 years ago.
The Qi version of The Analects of Confucius, which had been lost for about 1,800 years, was found in the unearthed bamboo slips which have been subject to infrared scanning and are ready for further study.
It is also the only tomb with a chariot burial site in the south of the Yangtze River. Five well-preserved horse-drawn vehicles, each with four sacrificed horses, were found, indicating that the owner was among the highest echelons of the Han Dynasty.
Liu, the marquis, was the grandson of Emperor Wu, whose reign ushered in a prosperous period of the Han Dynasty that is believed on a par with the reign of the first emperor of Qin Dynasty.
"To know Emperor Qin and his dynasty through archaeological artifacts, one can turn to Terra-cotta Warriors. Nevertheless, before the Haihunhou tomb, there were not many artifacts for an in-depth study of Emperor Wu," said Yang Jun, a researcher at the Jiangxi Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology and the leading archaeologist.
In Yang's view, the Haihunhou tomb shed light on the mightiness of the Han Dynasty as all treasures bearing the mark of the marquis had been buried with him.
The 4 million unearthed Wuzhu bronze coins attested to the dynasty's opulence. This finding is the first hard evidence of the Chinese using a string of 1,000 coins as a monetary unit, pushing the original date back 600 years.

ONIX Pickleball is donating $10,000 to the Indiana Women in Need Foundation (IWIN) for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and launching a Paddle with a Purpose campaign to heighten awareness of this horrible disease. The goal is to get as many people as possible involved in raising awareness and funds to help local Indiana men and women who might need assistance as well as have people support the effort in finding life-saving research. Paddle with a Purpose campaign consists of a complete line of pink pickleball products including the top-selling Evoke Premier paddle that is used by many pickleball professionals, pink pickleball sport bags, a pink pickleball paddle cover, and a pink sweat wristband, all supporting this great cause.
"ONIX is excited to help make a difference in our local community and beyond by donating proceeds to the IWIN. One in eight women are affected by breast cancer, and being able to commit to giving back is very special, especially for the second year in a row," says Emily Patton, ONIX Brand Manager. "We want to continue showing our support to our community, family, and friends. Everyone who participates in buying the pink products will be donating to this important cause."
The IWIN Foundation continues to support individuals that are currently in treatment for breast cancer statewide; they do this by securing and paying for individual services that relieve emotional, physical, and financial burdens. The IWIN states, "On behalf of the many Hoosiers served with this generous donation, we share our deepest gratitude with the teams at Onix Pickleball and Escalade Sports. Hoosiers struggling to afford basic needs, like transportation, meals, and childcare, during breast cancer treatment, will be given this enormous donation. The IWIN Foundation was rooted in the belief that communities coming together can achieve great things. This is a terrific example of an industry leader supporting some of our most vulnerable in their time of need."
The IWIN Foundation's vision is to be an innovative nonprofit organization, that is built on passion, dedication, and integrity, and where communities feel called to support their mission. They strive to grow and be recognized as the "neighbor next door" to all Indiana individuals enduring breast cancer.
"This donation will make an enormous impact on dozens of Hoosiers struggling to afford basic needs, like transportation, meals, and childcare, during breast cancer treatment. ONIX is not only an industry leader but also a community leader," says Debbie Laswell, Program Director of the IWIN Foundation. "The IWIN Foundation is deeply grateful for the generous support of ONIX Pickleball."
