Archaeology in Hong Kong

Archaeological research is characteristic for rich countries … That is why it is ensured in poor countries by rich countries … The danger is corruption, which in rich countries as in poor countries, threatening to block sites You really have a real sense of ancestral heritage sites that are not overshadowed by the pressure of real estate or farms or mineral oil deposits   In Hong Kong, it is since the 1920s that the sites are considered and protected Given the richness and the number of sites, it is likely that before that date many archaeological sites have sunken into the real estate expansion … But what is most important today is that this issue attitudes have really changed   We found, among others, Hong Kong 8 petroglyph sites listed, stone circles, standing stone and a large Neolithic village … All of these sites date from the fifth millennium BC, attested by the C14, and the Bronze Age   Are added to these sites, cave drawings of the Bronze Age tombs of the Han Dynasty and many other sites in the historical period as pottery, temples, etc. …

The Tocharian petroglyphs

The numerous petroglyphs of Hong Kong, places where they are found, and the nature of signs which are engraved, now give us an explanation of their origin and their use: These are signs   They show first that we are in territory Tocharian They tell us where we are and what we find   That is why we find these petroglyphs, in prominent places of the sea, or land at the crossroads This also explains the stylization of various data, like birds, fish, men, etc. … The geometrical figures corresponding to data base, known Tocharian

The Tocharian of Hong Kong

Of course, Hong Kong, the traces of Tocharian are obvious: megaliths, petroglyphs, very advanced manufactured goods, etc. … But what more important, what racial types are found in the tombs: The same in all regions tokhariennes north, from Tibet to Manchuria, see the first chapters of this third party, and south of Indochina east to Madagascar and west to Hong Kong … Again, recent discoveries in archeology, confirm my theories …   And you can not find this strange megalithic circle, placed on a granite slab, and pretend to be much there to be seen from a plane … One more sign …
