China’s archeological discoveries in 2019

SIX archeological projects have been made public by the Institute of Archeology of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences as “China’s 2019 archeological discoveries of the year.”

The six laureate archeological projects include a Neolithic site of Longshan Culture in east China’s Shandong Province, a tomb of the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) in Hubei Province, and a tomb with frescos which dates back to Tibetan Tubo Kingdom (about 618-842) in the high-altitude Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

Nateshwar in the Vikrampura Ancient City in the People’s Republic of Bangladesh was named the foreign archeological discovery of 2019.

During the archeology forum of the CASS Institute of Archeology last week, expert representatives delivered presentations to introduce the awarded archeological projects from multiple aspects, such as the archeological background, process of excavation, main achievements and the academic significance.

The forum, initiated in 2002, is considered as a platform for exchanging information, presenting new findings and academic lectures of archeology due to its wide recognition and high profe­ssional standards.
