The preface by Mr. Feng Jicai in Templates for Chinese Traditional Villages Archive-Building and Survey
Since the launch of the survey to build an archive for Chinese traditional villages in June, it has gained huge support of the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles, Ministry of Culture, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage, China Literature and Art Foundation, as well as support of scholars, photographers, and professionals in culture industry. It is spreading all across the country and has achieved pleasant results.

At present, a technical problem is the lack of templates. Since this is the first time that surveys were conducted to build an archive for villages on a national scale, there are no precedents or experiences, neither are there specific templates that can be followed. Although the Field Manual contains detailed explanation on different aspects of surveys in villages, the staff is still unclear about what kind of villages meets the requirements.

Therefore, the center’s office decided to make templates, following which it sent a team consisting of professional staff and photographers to Jinzhong area in Shanxi to conduct surveys at Hougou village and Zhangbi village. Both are typical traditional villages and have been collected in the Catalog of Chinese Traditional Villages (first group). They have rich history and various type of heritage. The shapes of the villages are complete and with their own characteristics. The villages are still active and are suitable for making templates.

During the surveys, the staff team strictly adhered to the manual and took a comprehensive approach in conducting surveys for each item. And the recorders and photographers completed the text and picture registration form as required. An electronic document with texts and pictures was completed and later was made into a survey template. 

This template can be used as a model for surveys and registration in different places and for checking and comparing survey results.

Since the shapes, ecosystems and heritage of different villages are not the same, it is not required to strictly follow the template. Please refer to “explanation” section in the book.
I wish the project great success.
