3,500-year-old settlement site discovered in Xinjiang

Archaeologists discovered the ruins of an ancient settlement site dating back 3,500 years ago in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The site corresponds to the Bronze Age (3,000 BC-1,200 BC). It was discovered recently when archaeologists conducted a rescue excavation of a 2,000-year-old tomb group of the Han Dynasty (202 BC-220 AD).
