In China, archaeologists have discovered the ruins of 12 ancient houses, the age of which is 4.3-4.8 thousand years. The discovery was made in the city of Lyuliang, located in Shanxi province. The finds can be attributed to belonging to a culture with the larger Xinyi ruins complex located in Lishi district, which is subordinate to Liuliang County. This complex covers an area of 400 thousand square meters. For several months, archaeologists conducted excavations before building the road.

During the excavations, researchers found five pits, a pottery kiln and the ruins of houses. The ancient structures belong to the Longshan (Neolithic) culture, which existed during the Eneolithic period. The ruins discovered will help historians better understand the possible cultural exchange between the Central and Northern regions of China.

The Longshan culture is based on another ancient Chinese culture, Yangshao. People lived in small villages, engaged in agriculture and animal husbandry, made ceramics, and moved to a new place every few decades. The number of structures in some villages reached 100 buildings. On the basis of the Longshan culture, the Erlitou archaeological culture developed, which is associated with the Xia dynasty - the first state formation in the history of China.
