Archaeologists excavate Chinese Neolithic mound
Since October this year, Chinese archaeologists have been busy excavating a Neolithic shell mound site in city Chongzuo of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in southwest China. To date, archaeologists have unearthed numerous pieces of stone, bone and mussel implements, ornamental items and the remains of plants and animals in over 10 pre-historic tombs located 1.6 meters under the ground. Furthermore, they found a well preserved human being skeleton at the excavation site. Experts presume that the site belongs to the middle or late Neolithic era, about 6,000 years ago.
