Yue Kiln Sites Entitled as National Archeological Relics Park
Updated:2017-12-06 15:48:00

A working meeting for assessing national archeological relics parks was held in Cixi County. At the meeting, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage issued the list of the third batch of national archeological relics parks and launched the awarding ceremony, when 12 relics parks, including the Yue Kiln sites of the Shanglai Lake area, were entitled the national archeological relics parks.
As the center of the Yue Kiln during the period of Tang Dynasty and Song Dynasty, the Yue Kiln of the Shanglin Lake area has played an important role in the history of China's ceramics production. With its complete preserve of the historical traces of the founding, development, prosperity and decline of the Yue Kiln, as well as the rich kiln remains, the Shanglin Lake Yue Kiln is the largest "open museum for celadon" in the world.
The relics park, with a total area of about 15 square kilometers, consists of the six functional blocks for relics exhibition, archeological reserve and administration and services respectively. Among others, the Shanglin Lake Yue Kiln Museum, boasting of various ways of exhibiting, including demonstration of unearthed items, multi-media display and scene reappearance, manifests the ceramics production level of the kiln and its influence on other similar kilns.
In the planning and construction of the relics park, Cixi County has made efforts to integrate such surrounding cultural and tourist resources as the Celadon Culture Park, the Heming Ancient Town, the Crane Celadon Culture Creative Park and the fitness trail of the Kaolao Mountain. By integrating such traditional cultural resources and the eco-tourism resources as leisure tourism, celadon creativity, sightseeing agriculture, cultural heritage protection and display, the park has become a functional district for the celadon culture and tourism with various industrial patterns and rich functions in the southern area of Cixi County.
"The integration of resources and cooperation between areas have promoted the sustainable development of the archeological relics park." said a person in charge from the county. "In the future, with the focus on the celadon culture, the park will be built as a celadon culture resort with such functions as protection and administration, display and education, tourism and leisure, cultural exchange and academic research."
