Gukewen is one of the earliest Chinese characters that were in use between late Dawenkou Culture and mid-Shang Dynasty. Field archaeological investigations and scientific testing jointly establish that Gukewen is about 3300-4600 years old and serves as a major precursor of the oracle bone inscription. So far nearly 3,000 characters have been identified, the style and structure of which could fall into three categories: pictograph, trunk branching structure and centrai round or nearly round.

During the event Prof. Fengjun will receive the Institute Honorary Fellowship for his outstanding contributions to the archaeology, namely on discovery and research of Gukewen and early stages of Chinese writings, to which he added valuable results on the modern Chinese painting and calligraphy that deserved him numerous awards and prizes. His scientific achievements are attested by many books and more than one hundred academic papers and academic assignments.
