Jingchu culture is an important part of a long Chinese civilization.

The status in the history of the development of Chinese civilization is important.

Hubei is the birthplace of Jingchu culture

Historical heritage has a long history and profound cultural heritage.

After the discovery of Zenghou Yi in Suizhou, Hubei in 1978, he was shocked.

For more than forty years, the land has not loved the treasure, and Hua Zhang has reproduced it.

Zeng Guo’s archeology has continued to make new progress.

But more questions are surrounded by the minds of the world?

What country is "Zeng Guo"?

Since the Song Dynasty, "Zeng Hou Zhong", "Zeng Ji No shot pot", etc.

Many "Zeng" inscription bronze wares have been discovered one after another,

They show that there is a "Zeng Guo" closely related to the Chu State in the Zhou Dynasty.

However, these bronze wares are not discovered by science and archeology.

Lack of system archaeological information,

We cannot make us know Zeng Guo more deeply.

Two excavations after 2011 and 2013,

Archaeologists found 140 Zeng Guo tombs in Zengguo Cemetery, Yejiashan, Suizhou.

Three Zenghou was buried here.

Archaeologists also found a "犺 犺 考 考 考 考 考" bronze 簋 in the tomb 111,

It shows that this puppet was made by Zeng Houyu for his father, Nan Gong.

Nan Gong is the Nangong Shi, which is very politically and military in the early years of the Western Zhou Dynasty.

And Zeng Guo is Nangong Shi.

Today, the front line of Zaoyang, Hubei is located between Tongbai Mountain and Dahong Mountain, East of Hanshui.

Beitong Nanyang Basin, Nanlian Jianghan Plain,

Known as the "jujube corridor".

The Zhou Dynasty seized Zeng Guo’s division here,

As a strategic fulcrum to control southern copper ore resources and pass through the strategic Jianghan area.
