What people are saying:

The Changsha Jane-Slip Museum is mainly a collection of more than 100,000 pieces of the Sun Wu of the Three Kingdoms unearthed in Changsha and more than 20,000 pieces of the early Western Han Dynasty. The earliest paper artifacts found are in the Western Han Dynasty, and the Eastern Han Dynasty is not the founder of papermaking but the improvement of papermaking. The government documents were still written in bamboo and wooden scribbles, indicating that the paper was not officially approved at that time. It was used only in the private sector and was not popular. ​​​
