Three Kingdoms is one of the most famous periods in Chinese history. The period of this heroic war has produced many famous characters such as Cao Cao, Luu Be, Gia Cat Luong, Quan Vu .
This is the reason that tombs dating to the Three Kingdoms era are always very interested. And the ancient tomb of green bricks discovered in Zhejiang (China) below is also one of them.
It is worth mentioning that, the tomb dating back to this Three Kingdoms period owns no different scale than royal tombs. So is that the resting place of some floating character in this era?
In 2010 a team of workers in the process of constructing in the Fangjia Mountain area (Zhejiang, China) accidentally discovered some green bricks at the construction site.
Not only different from regular bricks, these green bricks also have veins carved above. It is the vestiges of this special green brick that has become a focal point to find a large and sumptuous ancient tomb.
The researchers then concluded that this ancient tomb was identified as dating to the Three Kingdoms period. Not stopping there, inside the grave also contains a lot of heterosexuals.
Although it cannot be compared to the Qin Shihuang tomb of luxury, this luxurious way of burial is totally in line with the royal tomb.
So is the owner of this grave a person of status or power in the Three Kingdoms period?
The answer is no. From the tomb found in the tomb, people found the identity of the tomb master.
Quan An has carved four big words: "Tan An seal school".
Some historical sources also recorded, indeed in the Tam Quoc period, there was indeed a district named Tan An, later renamed "Tin An district" and then "Cu" district and gradually developed into Cu Chau day. now on.
Thus, the owner of the grave while still living in the position of the district command of Tan An, the official is dependent on the lost goods.
When the identity of the person in the grave was determined, a dark secret about the Three Kingdoms period was also exposed to posterity.
In the Three Kingdoms period, the position of the Han royal family was in decline. It can be said that to survive between this chaotic age, money and force are two very important things.
The District ordered the products to be buried in lavish tombs and like this royal royal tomb was a testament to that.
In ancient times, the rank was highly respected, the way to build graves for people of different backgrounds and statuses was clearly defined.
If following the rules, how can the resting place of a District be so superficial and luxurious as royalty?
Moreover, it was the imprint discovered inside the tomb that denounced the chaotic social reality at that time.
According to records of historical sources, in ancient times in China, the mandarins were not allowed to bring home, and were not even buried in the tomb .
But the grave of the district mandate ordered that this not so high-level product has an imprint. This proves that the other local official, who was still living down the law, did not even hesitate to take the mandarin to bury, naturally doing a great disrespect.
Not stopping there, the district commander even built his resting place like the royal tomb of the king.
The overly luxurious grave and the other is visually evident as the evidence of the "overriding" of this local official.
From this green brick tomb, we can see the degree of disturbance of the Three Kingdoms period in fact far beyond what history describes.
Even an unbelievably high-ranking local official could " calmly become king of a realm" , giving himself privileges no less than the royal family.
