It’s a shame U.S. media reporting of the rich archaeological findings at Sanxingdui, located in southwest China, has been so minimal.
China Focus takes a look at what has been uncovered there.
Since 1986, Sichuan archaeologists have conducted more than 20 excavations, gradually gaining a better understanding of the civilization’s development and features, the most notable of which is a large-scale foundation, possibly for a palatial structure. On March 20, 2021, exciting news was announced that six more pits near the two 1986 pits had been discovered. Live telecasting of the excavation continued for several days, gripping the country.
