Editor's Note:
New archeological findings from ancient China's Western Zhou Dynasty (1046-771 BC) were introduced to the public at the excavation site in Liulihe town, Fangshan district, southwestern Beijing. The discovery suggests that the region used to be the capital and fiefdom of the Yan kingdom during Western Zhou. It is also the earliest city traces of Beijing found so far. In recent years, bronze knives, arrows, jade, stone wares, bones and potteries were unearthed in the site. Archeologists also found seeds of millet, wheat, soybean, and barley. (Photos: Li Hao/GT)
