Ancient residential sites found
From:Xinhua News  Writer:  Date:2011-06-20

 

Archaeological workers have discovered a large-scale ancient residential site in north China's Hebei Province.

Located in the village of Fenggezhuang in the city of Tangshan, the site is believed to date back to the Jin (1115-1234), Yuan (1206-1370) and Ming (1368-1644) dynasties, according to Zhang Xiaozheng, a researcher with the Hebei Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics.

The rectangular site covers 60,000 square meters. A 700-year-old walking path is considered to be the most significant finding at this site.

Deep furrows have been found on the 10-meter-wide path, which indicates that the path once teemed with traffic.

Six building sites, 41 ash pits and five hearths were also found at the site.
