Re: Is it Cao Cao's tomb?

There's one thing you're missing, though: they found DNA matches between a tooth from Cao Cao's uncle Cao Ding and multiple claimed descendants. Yes, Cao Song was adopted, but back then adoptions were usually from nearby relatives (e.g. Yuan Shao being adopted by his childless uncle, much to Yuan S...

Re: Three Kingdoms Maps and Illustrations

You don't really need permission to open a thread, except that you should not do it here in archives.

I wonder which software you are using, QGIS ,ArcGIS or others? Also I would love to know where you download that base satellite map :)

Re: Is it Cao Cao's tomb?

It was 2009, about one and a half decade ago. Time flies! Several external reasons for the popular opposition or skepticism existed back then. 1) People would have except a large amount of fantastic findings from the tomb of such a well-known figure, but there really is not much. 2) There had been o...

I am not entriely sure on that, but it seems like you may not be using the correct shoreline, which has been changing through...

Re: Is it Cao Cao's tomb?

The question of whether that is Cao Cao's tomb or not is no "news" anymore. The archeological report has been published, and there is plentiful evidence supporting so. If you want real "news", there has actually been one last week - new discocvery reveals that the tomb had a guar...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

Does anyone have a .mobi, .epub, etc copy of the real C.H. Brewitt-Taylor edition? Not a threekingdoms.com copy, and does not matter if a newer edition. Also does not matter if account-bound, as the goal is to explore a means to extract the text so it may be used as a reference in speeding up the w...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

The only modern ebook of textual B-T translation (that is not copied from threekingdoms.com) is Tuttle 2011 kindle edition. I might have bought it if the same discount was going on Amazon Japan, where my main account is located at... Right now it would cost about double price there :rangry: https://...
