Sacrificial altar uncovered in ancient Neolithic city in China

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Archaeologists have uncovered a number of altar relics, including jade artefacts and pits for offerings, at the Shimao ruins, a Neolithic city in China.  The findings suggest a religious culture at the time in which human sacrifice played a part.

The Shimao ruins, located in China’s Shaanxi Province, were first discovered in 1976.  Until 2012, they were believed to be part of a small town. However, last year, archaeologists realised that the ruins were part of a much larger city extending over an area of 4.25 square kilometres.  It was built about 4,300 years ago and abandoned roughly 300 years later during the Xia Dynasty (2100-1600 BC), the first dynasty in China described in historical chronicles.
