Ancient site in Hainan tells the stories of human history
Fulongyuan site is located in Dongfang City, Hainan Province, covering an area of 280,000 square meters. Discovered in 1986, it is the largest ancient site in Hainan with the richest accumulation of cultural layers.
After the excavations conducted by the National Museum of China Institute of Archaeology, most of the area has been turned back to farm land.
The cultural layer is 1-2m thick. Shells, animal teeth and pottery fragments in the soil can be found in different layers, indicating the traces of ancient human activities as well as the geological changes.
