This paper introduces several newly unearthed wooden figures from tombs in Yangzhou that date to the Five Dynasties period, and provides complete transcriptions and preliminary studies of the inscriptions on them. By comparing these figures to similar materials discovered elsewhere, this paper argues that the function of putting these kinds of wooden figurines in tombs was to avoid misfortune. The last portion of the paper briefly examines the origin of this custom and beliefs behind it.揚州市文物考古研究所在五代墓葬中發現五代時期有字木人俑兩組六件,它們均與解除術有關,可命名為“解除木人”。本文考釋了這些木人身上書寫的文字,並就解除木人的源流及相關問題作初步研究。
