Black Pottery Made in Chiping, China: A Magic Art that Spans Thousands of Years

LIAOCHENG, China, Nov 16 (Bernama-AsiaNet) — The craft of pottery is a major marker of human civilization.

Over the last three decades, Chinese archaeologists have undertaken four excavations at the Longshan Culture Site in Jiaochangpu, Chiping, where a variety of almost 1,000 pieces of pottery, stone and bone relics have been unearthed. Among them, the three pottery kilns excavated in 2001 remain the most complete cluster of Longshan Culture in China, constituting a valuable source of cultural relics for research into the socio-economic patterns of that period.
