The Site of Dayao Culture

The Site of Dayao Culture, which was discovered in 1973, is located in the South Mountain of Dayao Village in the east suburb, 33 kilometers away from the urban area of Hohhot. It is believed by the archaeologists that this site used to be the place of making stone implements 500,000 years ago. Many stone implements, such as stone balls, stone axes and stone tools for cutting and hammering, have been unearthed. Up to this day, the man-made semi-finished stone implements can be seen on the ground of the site which is about five kilometers in circumference. Besides, the fossils of the ancient animals and the ashes left by the ancients have been discovered in the underground la6ers of the site. Like the Peking Man in Zhoukoudian Site of Beijing, the site of Dayao culture has undergone long years since the Old Stone Age and New Stone Age.
