A Tentative Analysis on the House Distributing Principle in the Liu Clan's Daily Life from Fenhu,Wu Jiang

WU Tao;The Centre for Historical Geography,Sun Yat-sen Universitiy;  
"Fang"or house,which has the meaning of branches in traditional Chinese,if seen with theories on patriarchal clans,can be regarded as the synonym for the ancestral hall affiliated to all branches of a clan or ancestral shrine.The house distributing principle,seen everywhere in Fenhu's Liu Clan's daily life,also decides all kinds of functional relationships,such as property inheritance,weddings and funerals,within the clan.The status or share formulated on the basis of the principle determines the management authority and the participation degree of all the branches in the affairs of their clan.The study of clan history and that of the family then can be combined with the medium of"fang",and it is also likely to provide a possibility for the understanding of the true meaning of"family" in traditional Chinese in native"context".
