Prehistoric Village Unearthed in China
Archaeologists in China have uncovered the ruins of a prehistoric village dating back about 7,000 to 8,000 years. The ruins consisted of 10 well-preserved semi-subterranean houses. Other excavated finds included natural stone blocks, stone used as building materials, various stone ware, broken pottery, and walnuts. Approximately 1,200 square meters of the site were excavated. Archaeologists say that the discovery will shed light on the cultural relations between north and central China in ancient times.
