On November 10, the Provincial Government held a press conference on "Zhejiang Archaeology and Chinese Civilization" to showcase the important contributions and brilliant achievements of Zhejiang archaeology in the history of Chinese civilization, and to demonstrate Zhejiang’s vital role as a star in the search for the source of Chinese civilization.

It was the first proof that the brilliant and ancient Neolithic culture also existed in the Yangtze River Basin, where is also the cradle of Chinese civilization. Recently, the Hemudu site was named one of the “Top 100 Archaeological Discoveries in a Hundred Years” in China.

The Shangshan site is the earliest relic of rice farming in the world that has been discovered so far.

This ancient paddy field with an area of about 80,000 square meters is the largest and oldest one discovered in the world.
