According to archaeological discoveries, immigrants from Koguryo and Baekje in the Tang dynasty clustered at Chang’an and Luoyang. The epitaphs of those immigrants recorded their life, which have revealed how they interacted with the Han culture in the Central Plains. Their inter-marriages with the Han people can also be learnt from the epitaphs. This talk will summarize the general information revealed in the epitaph first, and then focus on how the funerary rituals and virtue system of the immigrants were impacted and transformed in the Tang dynasty.

Please note that this talk will be held in Chinese with English translations.
