ECNS App DownloadChinese archaeologists have discovered a collection of large-scale ruins dating to the Western Zhou Dynasty (1046-771 BC) in Xian, capital of northwest Chinas Shaanxi Province.
Deduced from a sacrifice-related animal bone pit unearthed at the site, experts said imperial ancestral temples in the period could be found in the nearby areas.
The site was found in the ruins of Haojing, the capital city of the Western Zhou Dynasty. Archaeologists have been excavating the building complex since 2019, according to the Shaanxi Academy of Archaeology.
In the animal bone pit, skulls of animals including cattle, sheep and pigs were found, which were used in sacrificial ceremonies in the Western Zhou Dynasty.
Deer skulls were also excavated, likely an additional type of sacrificial offering, said Yue Lianjian, a researcher with the academy, adding that ancestral temple sites from that period could be found in nearby areas.
The discovery will help reveal the functional division of the capital city and architectural sites in the Western Zhou Dynasty. In recent years, researchers have found many relic sites including building clusters and tombs in the ruins of Haojing.MorePhotoThe Three Kingdoms exhibition held in ChengduSniffer dog trained to detect COVID-19 in human sweatGuangji Bridge in Guangdong: Free to connect and disconnectCherry blossom season arrives in Washington D.C.Seals lie in a lazy pose and wave helloVoice recorder recovered from crashed Indonesia planeVirgin Galactic unveils new spaceship VSS ImagineLogo of Milan-Cortina 2026 Olympics and Paralympics unveiledSpaceX Starship SN11 rocket fails to land safely after test launchExhibition of Lhasas intangible cultural heritage opens at Tibet Yak MuseumWall of hearts painted as a memorial to COVID-19 deathsChina successfully launches Gaofen-12 02 satelliteDerek Chauvin trial begins in George Floyd murder caseScenery of Icelands volcanic eruptionSpring scenery at cherry blossom garden in AnhuiShanghai vaccinates foreigners against COVID-19Chinese COVID-19 vaccine shipped to ManilaChinas FAST telescope identifies over 300 pulsarsShip Ever Given freedStop Asian Hate rallies held across CanadaParisians revel in spring scenery along Seine River despite Covid-19 pandemicNearly 100 cats debut at beauty contest in E Chinas ChangzhouChinas first panda-themed tourist train starts operation in SichuanPhotographer witnesses Icelandic volcano erupt in IcelandPresident Xi stresses more efforts to serve, integrate into new development paradigmNew discoveries from Sanxingdui Ruins lead to increasing visitors to Beijing museumMexican researchers design nose-only COVID-19 mask for eating and drinkingPetrus wine comes back to France after a trip in spaceBritain unveils new 50-pound note featuring Alan Turing40-year unseen Picasso portrait showcased in LondonCherry blossoms in E Chinas Wuxi attract visitorsCherry blossoms bloom in E China’s AnhuiThree imperial seals of Ming and Qing Dynastie displayed at Sothebys in Hong KongWuhan bid farewell to beloved pandasEcological tea plantation in FujianFossil of extinct tree-climbing kangaroo found in AustraliaMost popular in 24h$(function () {$.ajaxSetup({cache: true});var tStr = new Date().getUTCHours()+_+ new Date().getUTCMinutes();$.ajax({type: “get”,dataType: “json”,url: “/part/6/ecns_rank24h.json?t=”+ tStr,success: function (status) {var str = “”;$.each(status,function(index,obj){obj.title = obj.title.replace(/'/g, ');str +=+obj[“title”]+;});$(“#rank24″).html(str);},error:function(status){}});});MoreTop newsGlobal growth prospects rise despite risks World trade to grow by 8 pct in 2021: WTO Russian parliament greenlights bill allowing Putin to run for two more terms Chinas Ministry of Education stops organizing Cambridge English exams Jimmy Lai among seven guilty of unauthorized assembly in HKMoreVideoTheme Song of The War in the Shadows: Challenges of Fighting Terrorism in XinjiangCherry blossoms light up early spring across ChinaLINEMedia partners:Peoples Daily Online|Xinhuanet|China.org.cn|ChinaDaily.com.cn|CGTN|Globaltimes.cn|Chinaplus.cri.cn|Shine.cn|JSCHINA|
