Many relics attest to the fact that the area surrounding the New Campus has been the site of flourishing human dwellings since ancient times.

Since relocation was decided, frequent surveys have unearthed widely dispersed relics from the Jomon period to the Edo period. In particular, a wooden tablet dating to 701, the year of the enactment of the Taiho Code and the beginning of the era name system is the oldest era name tablet ever found in Japan.

Regarding study and preservation of sites, Kyushu University has been carefully listening to the opinions of researchers and stakeholders on and off campus, undertaking from an academic perspective to develop policies for preserving them in their present conditions to the extent possible, and, where that is impossible due to campus composition and the limits of construction technology, moving and preserving their important parts.
