Ancient village found in Shaanxi
Chinese archaeologists found ruins of a 2,700-year-old village in northwest China's Shaanxi Province. The ruins date from the Western Zhou Dynasty (11th Century BCE to 771 BCE). Sections of a row of houses in the ruins are well preserved, said Yang Yachang, a researcher with the provincial archaeology research institute. A lot of stone knives and pottery utensils were found in the houses, which were built on a base of pounded earth. Archaeologists also found millet and bean seeds in the houses.
