The unearthed remains, from the late period of Dawenkou Culture (4100-2600 BC), have proved again the evolution of the early civilization in Jiangsu province.

Experts from the Nanjing Museum revealed that so far 18 tombs have been discovered and abundant funeral objects were also unearthed. The unearthed objects help the experts learn more about the funeral customs and living habits of people during that period, providing a more sufficient physical basis for the study of prehistoric society in Jiangsu province.
