Since its uncovering, the Changsha ‘Mawangdui’ geographical and troop garrison map has drawn the attention of the world. In the more than forty years since its discovery in the 1970s, most scholars, from the perspective of historical geography and the history of cartography, have emphasized the two maps reflection of political and military tensions and conflict between the early Western Han dynasty central government and the state of the Southern Yue. In addition, they also emphasized the accuracy and scientific spirit of these two, over 2100 year-old, maps.

 

This research reflects and builds upon the research methods of the preceding forty years, treating the two maps’ primary geographic information as art history, and on this foundation providing a new interpretation to critical elements of the maps. From this, this research provides a new explanation of the meaning and use of these two maps in the context of burial and religion.
