BEIJING: In the National Archaeological Park of Wuxi, China’s eastern province of Jiangsu, the remains of an ancient city with canals have been discovered.
Li Guangri, deputy head of the Institute of Cultural Relics and Archeology in Wuxi, said that during the Late Spring and Autumn Period (770 BC to 476 BC) and the Early Warring States Period (475 BC to 221 BC), the city of Wujiabang was home to about 8 million people. It covered an area of square meters.
Lee said the ancient city was located at the crossroads of rivers, so waterways could have been an important means of transportation at the time. Li added that apart from pottery and ancient porcelain, 99 wells up to 6 meters deep have also been discovered from the site, indicating that a large number of people lived in the ancient city at some point. It was delicious.
Excavation is going on to discover more relics at this place.
