The materials from Guodian tomb 1 have the characteristics of the second half of the middle and the first half of the late Warring States. Some are close to or later than those from Baoshan tombs 1 and 2, and some are the same as those from Baoshan tomb 4-5, Mashan tomb 1, and the tombs of the early fourth period (Phase 6) at Jiudian. So the Guodian tomb 1 belongs to the first half of the late Warring States, and its date should be between 300-278 BC.
