Latest discovery in Qinglong Township ruins seen in E China
From:Xinhua Net  Writer:Ren Long  Date:2016-12-09
Shanghai Museum on Thursday introduced the latest discovery since the excavation of the ruins in 2010. The Qinglong Township ruins is located in today's Baihe Township of Qingpu District in Shanghai, and documents recorded it as an important trade port in Tang (618-907) and Song (960-1279) Dynasties. In recent years, more than 6,000 restorable porcelain works and tens of thousands of broken porcelain pieces from nearby provinces were found in the ruins, which offers new evidence that Qinglong Township was an important port along the Maritime Silk Road. Besides, the discovery of the Longping temple, pagoda and its terrestrial palace in 2015 and 2016 helped the researchers to study the layout of the township as well as the history of China's ancient buildings and Buddhism.
