Excavation of Tombs of the Yuan Dynasty in Hebei Village, Pinggu, Beijing
Beijing Municipal Institute of Archaeology
In October of 2006, archaeologists excavated 23 ancient tombs to the west of Hebei Village, Mafang Town, Pinggu District, Beijing City. Five of the tombs were built in the Yuan dynasty. Each of the Yuan tombs consisted of a north-s outh oriented passage with a brick single chamber, round in shape,at its north end. All of the roofs had collapsed. Most of the unearthed objects were porcelain for daily use, totalling 31 pieces, including bowls, dishes, plates, four-handled bottles, and so on. All of the four -handled bottles were unearthed in pairs, placed to the east and west sides of the south of the chamber.The five tombs are close in distance and similar in tomb structures and burial objects. So they may have belonged to a single family. Since the tombs were built mainly from broken  bricks, their occupants must have belonged to the middle class in the Yuan dynasty.

Study on the Brocade with Double-Dragon and Double-Phoenix Designs of the Warring States
Zhao Feng et al.
In the year 1957, a piece of brocade with double-dragon and double-phoenix designs was unearthed in a tomb of the Chu state in Zuojiatang, Changsha, Hunan. It attracted widespread interest from scholars in ancient silk studies. In recent years, the China National Silk Museum collected another brocade with designs and style similar to the one discovered at Zuojiatang. The authors managed to rediscover the textile technique through trial and error, by reproducing the brocade. They also analyzed the motif of the double- dragon and double-phoenix designs on these brocade of the Warring States, and made further studies on the dragon, phoenix, animal, and geometric designs.

Brief Report of a 2007 Archaeological Survey of the Salt Industry Sites of the Pre-Qin Period in the Coastal Areas of Northern Shandong
Coastal Northern Shandong Pre-Qin Salt Industry Research Team
In the year 2007,a collaborative research team consisting of the Center for the Study of Chinese Archaeology of Peking University, the Shandong Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology, and other units carried out an archaeological survey of salt industry sites in Laizhou Bay and the Yellow River delta along the coastal area of northern Shandong. Some large-scale sites of the pre-Qin period were  discovered,such as Dongbeiwu and Nanheya in Guangyao,Shuangwangcheng,Dahuang-beiyang,and Hantingyangzi in Shouguang,Yangjia in Zhanhua,and so on,and confirmed the existence of Eastern  Zhou  period  salt -making  equipment  and  sites  for  the  first  time. This survey  allows us to further understand the distribution,scale,and conservation of the remains of the salt industry of the pre-Qin period,and to confirm the existing understanding that the coastal area of northern Shan- dong was the center of the salt industry of the Shang dynasty in the Yinxu period.
