Huangsipu Site in Zhangjiagang is the departure point of Jianzhen monks sixth eastward journey and an important node of the Silk Road on the sea. It was selected as Ten New Archaeological Discoveries in 2018 in China. Since its discovery in November 2008, Zhangjiagang Municipal Bureau of Cultural Relics has commissioned the Archaeological Institute of Nanjing Museum in Jiangsu Province to carry out continuous archaeological excavations.

Earlier this year, archaeologists alerted Zhangjiagang Public Security Bureau that some people had stolen the newly excavated cultural relics at the site excavation site. After on-site investigation by the police, the police pointed out that a porcelain bottle was found in a car parked near the site by a suspicious man.

The Beijing News reporter learned from the Zhangjiagang City Procuratorate that the man was a local. He claimed that he was obsessed with studying all kinds of antiques since childhood, and paid much attention to the information of historical sites in various places.

According to the mans confession to the public security organs, while browsing a forum, he was unintentionally informed about the excavation of the Huangsipu site in Zhangjiagang, so that he could drive to the scene at lunchtime the next day. Because it was lunchtime, the excavation workers went to lunch one after another. The man entered the shed No. 1 of the site. At the center of an exposed River bed, a complete porcelain bottle was taken.

Later, experts introduced that the porcelain vase collected by the police belonged to the Song Dynasty Korean vase, which is a relatively complete cultural relic. This Korean bottle is a kind of porcelain bottle popular in the Southern Song and Yuan Dynasty. It was used as a tool for soldiers to fetch water at that time. Its function is equivalent to that of the current military kettle. The discovery of this kind of pot is of great help to the study of the culture and the life habits of the military and civilians at that time, and has high research value.

It has been identified that the Korean bottle of the Song Dynasty belongs to a general cultural relic and is worth 800 yuan. However, due to the fact that the newly excavated pottery bottle has not yet had time to locate the unearthed location, take photos and other archaeological excavation procedures, the mans behavior has caused irreparable damage to the original appearance of the excavation site. According to our criminal law and relevant judicial interpretations, theft of general cultural relics should be recognized as a large amount.

This morning, a staff member of the Zhangjiagang Procuratorate told the Beijing News that the suspected man found at the scene of the incident was charged with theft and prosecuted. At present, the court has concluded the case. Considering that the man voluntarily pleaded guilty and pleaded guilty to punishment after returning to the case, and the related losses have been recovered, the court finally sentenced him to a fine of RMB 1500 for theft.
