According to Xinhua News Agency, archaeologists Jilin University with researchers Inner Mongolia PRC discovered a completely new kind of Chinese hieroglyphic writing – now on a fragment of a ceramic bowl, which was extracted during excavations of the ancient city of the Celestial Empire Gaojaytatszy.
Scientists have already determined that the age of these signs (four or three individual hieroglyphs) is not less than 4 thousand years, which means that they are older than even fortunetelling inscriptions on the jiaguven bones, which were considered to this day the most ancient hieroglyphs, and not only in China, but throughout East Asia. That’s what I said on this About the employee of the Institute of Archeology of Inner Mongolia of the PRC Lien Jilin:
We assumed that fortunetelling inscriptions on bones “jiaguven” whose age was estimated at 3 thousand years, written during the great Chinese dynasty of Shang (1600-1027 BC era), were a continuation (further development) of writing on ceramics, but until today we had no material confirmation of this. And now, finally, it was found …
Paleographers of the National Museum of the Celestial Empire confirmed the assumption of archaeologists that the hieroglyphs found more than 4 thousand years. Scientists also clarified that the mysterious signs, the meaning of which is still I don’t understand (we have to work on it, although experts suggest that ceramic vessels with inscriptions were used in religious ceremonies), written in special ink a brush made of wool.
