The problem of what sosial status a Tumulus had was more important for the people who lived around the Mounds which had been disignated as Tumulus, than for the intelligentsias or the politcians.
In this thesis, I studied in consideration of Tumulus from this point of view, that is, I put much stress on the relationship between the people and the Mounds.
After the Edo period ended, the Meiji era in which the Emperor was the highest authority came and suddonly the people begun to pay much attention to Tumuli because of that they were the graves of the Emperor's ancestors.
The Goverment and the local administrations tried to designate all sorts of Mounds as Tumuli from each stand points.
But both the Goverment and the local administrations were not entirely in agreement on their intentions.
One of these disagreement cases is SOJA-FUTAKOYAMA and MAE-FUTAKOYAMA Mounds in Gunma Prefecture. The then prefectural governor Motohiko Katori strongly recomended to designate these Mounds to the Goverment as the graves of TOYOKIIRIHIKONOMIKOTO,the Prince of SUJIN Emperor. He, who had self-confidence in his histrical point of view, plobably hoped to have one Tumulus at least in the Gunma Prefucture he governed.
In spite of his efforts, however, the designated period as Tumulus for SOJA-FUTAKOYAMA Mounds did not last long and MAE-FUTAKOYAMA Mounds was not even designated as Tumulus.
In all cases, Mounds made good use by the people who lived around there to earn their daily bread. The conception of Tumulus had a meaning of breaking off the relation between the people and the Mounds. In the Meiji era it was very diffcult protest openly against the leadership of the local authorities.
With historical sience, when we study the situation of Tumulus in the sosiety, it is very important problem to concider how the people in those days acted in such social conditions.
