Ancient Handicraft workshop cluster discovered in NW province of Shaanxi
From:Xinhua News  Writer:  Date:2011-02-15


A handcraft workshop cluster dating back to the late Warring States Period (475 BC-221 BC) has been unearthed in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, archaeologists said Monday.

Archaeologists have excavated a large amount of pottery items, porcelain tiles and ruins of kilns since April last year in the 3,000-square-meter Raoshang Site near Meixian County, which they thought was a handcraft workshop district that used to produce construction materials and porcelain articles for daily use for the ancient Meixian County.

According to the archaeologists, the workshops had operated for more than 500 years through the late Eastern Han Dynasty (25 - 220).
