One thousand two hundred and thirty six intact bamboo script were unearthed in Dec.1984 in Zhangjiashan Han tomb 247, Hubei Province, which includes a calendar consisting of 18 bamboo script. Besides Shuoyue and Stems and Branches of each month, two records described the experiences of the tomb owner in this calendar. It should be noted that solar terms did not appear in each script in this 18 years calendar. After resolving some issues, the author finally proved that this calendar was not actually used at that time.
