Witnessing History: New Discoveries at Sanxingdui

October 30 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Located in Southwest China’s Sichuan Province, Sanxingdui is recognized as a major Bronze Age site dating back over 5000-3000 years and one of the most important ancient remains in the world for its vast size, lengthy period and enriched cultural contents. Following a preliminary finding in 1929, a major breakthrough was made in 1986, when two major sacrificial pits were found, which brought to light over 1,000 artifacts.

After a hiatus of decades, a second major excavation took place earlier this year, which uncovered a total of 534 important relics from six sacrificial pits, including mysterious gold and bronze masks, a more than 2-meter-tall bronze statue, bronze ware, more than 100 ivory tusks, textiles and jade among other artifacts that give a peak into the ancient cultures that existed in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River.

During the excavation earlier this year, a crew from the Radio and Television Station of Shanghai led by Mr. Ma Bo, the producer of the station’s Cultural China program, was invited to film the uncovering process. The crew had the front seat to witness the stunning new discovery firsthand. At the invitation of the Renwen Society, Mr. Ma Bo will share with the audience at the lecture their observations, insights and stories behind the unprecedented discoveries.

中华文化优雅如斯,让文物活起来,不只是一句口号,还是当下各界人士需要探讨的课题。我们来自何处?我们为什么是我们?追根溯源,是因为中华民族五千年绵延不绝的文明,这是每个中国人从小就会背诵的内容。但如何让大众有体验、有认知、有参与、有互动,这是文博文化人的时代责任。三年来,上海广播电视台《書声文化大讲堂》和《文博中华》节目相继对话上博、故宫、敦煌、陕博、秦俑、三星堆以及大都会、卢浮宫等国内外17位一级博物馆馆(院)长讲述文博故事,传播世界文明,产生了一定的影响。

三星堆是新时期时代的遗址,距今已有5000至3000年历史。1986年首次考古发现的一号祭祀坑震惊世界,发掘出的古蜀秘宝属最具历史、科学、文化、艺术价值和最富观赏性的文物群体之一。三星堆遗址从而被称为20世纪人类最伟大的考古发现之一。2021年第二次发掘又有惊世大发现。连续6个考古坑相继出土的金面具、青铜人像、象牙、玉砖等文物重器成为中国及世界学术界关注的焦点。平顶和圆顶青铜人像有什么区别?三星堆是域外文明还是中华文明的一部分?期待的文字有没有可能被发现?

三星堆二次发掘之时,《文博中华》的总制片和主持人马波先生带节目组前后三次走进考古发掘现场(其中4月19日随李克强总理到访),实地采访,并走进考古发掘舱,零距离目睹厚度0.02毫米金面具、1.35米青铜跪坐人像的破土而出的时刻。华美人文学会特邀马波先生于10月30日(美东时间)晚8时至9时半(北京时间31日上午8时至9时半)在线做客人文学会,从亲历者、见证者的视角,讲述此次考古背后鲜为人知的经历和故事,分享并解读:三星堆遗址是新石器时代,古蜀文明、中原文明、良渚文化、红山文化等其中的一支;它特性独立,又多元融合,各美其美又美美与共,追古鉴今,应以天下大同的观念来理解,会加深人类对多元文明发展交流的理解和认识。讲座中马波先生还将与听众分享珍贵的发掘现场的照片和视频资料。

主讲人马波,上海广播电视台《書声文化大讲堂》《文博中华》栏目总制片、主持人,资深传媒人,文化产业运营管理。多年的东方卫视新闻记者经历,一线采访,直播对话,政要面对面等国内外重要时刻的亲历与见证:上海世博会,北京奥运会,汶川地震,卡特、基辛格、莫迪、马克龙等采访报道。
