Ancient graves shed new light on Jiangsu

Excavations are continuing at Jiang Village, north of the Yangtze River in China’s Jiangsu province, where hundreds of Neolithic graves belonging to the Liangzhu people (3400-2250BC) were discovered in 2015. The site challenges earlier assumptions that the Liangzhu did not live north of the Yangtze. The excavation is focusing on a 3,500 sq. m corner of the site, east of the Taidong River. A 450,000 sq. m area west of the river, which dates to the Tang and Song dynasties, is awaiting excavation.
