Swedish astronomer Knut Lundmark was among the early proponents of recognizing the significant value of ancient East Asian celestial records in astronomy. Starting in 1921, he initiated a series of investigations into ancient East Asian comet and guest star (supernova and nova) records. These studies provided crucial support for Lundmark’s astronomical work and led him to appreciate the potential of utilizing historical records to address astronomical inquiries. In this paper, the author will incorporate relevant historical data to introduce and analyze Knut Lundmark’s research find-ings, examining the issues and value within his research.
