Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum
"Historical Records" records that inside the Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum there is a "mechanism", which is also known as "Fuxi". The arrows are automatically fired and the tombs are approached by an arrow. In fact, this so-called "organism" has never been discovered in archaeological excavations. It is impossible to exist in reality because the arrow is metal and it is rusted and unusable for a long time.
"Historical Records" has another record of Qin Shihuang's Mausoleum: "Mercury is the river, the sea and the sea, the indoctrination of the machine phase." This design is, on the one hand, to embody the lofty status of Qin Shihuang's "harmony between man and nature"; on the other hand, It may be the use of mercury volatile characteristics of anti-theft. This design cannot be confirmed at present, but the seal of Qin Shihuang's mausoleum may indeed have a lot of mercury. This kind of design is not only the tomb of Qin Shihuang, but also the interior of other imperial mausoleums.

In some tomb novels also mentioned that many robbers thief opened the ancient tomb, there will be a fire, burned and burned. This so-called "grave fire" and "vuo fire" may not be intentional anti-theft design. As we all know, there are a variety of organic matter buried in the tomb, which will produce a combustible gas - biogas after long-term burial. Tomb raiders come in and come in. Once the biogas fires, an explosion or fire will occur. However, the biogas in the tomb does have some anti-theft function. Therefore, when archaeologists were at the time of archaeology, they arrived at the crucial moment of opening the tomb gate, to allow the combustible gas to be exhausted, and to resolutely put an end to the open fire.
There is also a kind of “fire” in the tomb, which is the light emitted by the Changming Deng. This was a large vat found in Hongbao’s tomb of the emperor of the Ming Dynasty of Nanjing’s Zutang Mountain. It was originally used as a point light.

Tomb novels are very popular now, and some of them have realistic shadows. But there are also some so-called anti-theft tomb mechanisms and traps that the authors have abundant imagination. In actual archeological practice, they have not encountered it. However, in order to fight against the tomb, in ancient times, the ancients thought that there were many anti-theft measures.
The little girl made reference to the articles on the Internet and made a simple review of the anti-theft tomb methods of the ancients. What we are talking about here is all about the true history of scientific archaeological discoveries, not the fictional plots of the Tomb Graves novels. Please do not misunderstand them.
The ancients attached great importance to the anti-theft measures of the tomb itself. The most typical is the use of stone to build the tomb, making the tomb extremely strong, outsiders can not "invasion." In the past few years, an expert from the Nanjing Museum discovered the tomb of Nantang Erling 3, which was the Fuling after Queen Li’s Queen’s Week. It was discovered that although the tomb was a brickwork, there was a layer of anti-theft slate at the top, forming a very spectacular "Stonehenge".

The "Stonehenge" plane is rectangular and consists of 17 slabs. Between the slate and the slate, they are snapped tightly together through the grooves and sill. It looks like the tomb is like a thick shield on top of its head and is very strong.
In places other than Nanjing, such as the Han tombs in Hebei, Shandong, and Xuzhou, Jiangsu, caves are often made as burial chambers on the cliffs. Such "cliff tombs" are stronger than stone tombs and are less likely to be stolen.
This type of tomb was hidden in the mountain of stone. It took a few years or even more than ten years to build it. It used tens of thousands of migrant workers, and there were large stones in the entrance and in the passages, which were tectonic stones and weighed several tons. Where there is a gap in the door, use "iron liquid" to pour. In ancient times, without any advanced tools, thieves would be hard to enter regardless of their direction.
For anti-theft tombs, the ancients also used their brains in the form of tombs and set up “traps” to induce tombstone thieves to be fooled. The most typical is the "sand accumulation tomb" because of the mobility of the sand. Sand is buried in the grave and grave. Once a tomb robber robs a grave or a grave, sand will automatically bury the pirates, thus protecting the tombs.
From the middle of the Ming Dynasty to the middle of the Qing Dynasty, a kind of "tomb screed" was popular in Taizhou and Nantong. This kind of tomb first appeared in the Yuan Dynasty, and the “muddy” of materials such as lime, coarse sand, and glutinous rice husks were excavated from the tombs of the burial mounds, and they were rammed into layers.
Tombs are sometimes filled with Chinese medicine to protect the body. The slush grave form is special, and it is not easy to open compared to the general grave. Some well-preserved grave tombs are not only safely stored in the coffin but also are preserved in the tomb of the owner and are not easily rotted. In the burial graves unearthed in Taizhou, the complete clothing of the Ming Dynasty can often be seen, and the corpses can even remain flexible. It is also because the cemetery is not easy to be stolen and the airtightness is extremely good.
