More than 1 week has past, but it seems that the public is still not completely convinced that Cao Cao is the owner of the tomb discovered.

Cao Cao, as one of the most famous poets in history, wrote many great poems about life, and some of his thoughts are still respected by today. However, what would he think about the dispute left by his tomb? Perhaps it was a deliberate attempt on his part, to confuse us?

In spite of those queries and responses, it doesn't matter what people say about the tomb, the most important thing is that society maintains this spirit of questioning. Questioning is a kind of caution that academic and archeological circles should focus on more in their specialties. Just as Gao Menghe a scholar of Fudan University said, archeology can not only be explained by experts nowadays, and so-called authority can no longer be completely accepted by the public.
