The site of an ancient settlement in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province, has been confirmed as dating back more than 2,000 years, the city cultural relics and archaeology institute said on Sunday.

The institute started work on Qingzhuangzi City in the Hunnan District of Shenyang in July 2016. So far, about 500 square meters have been excavated.

Archaeologists have found the remains of houses, cellars, ash pits, and tombs. Pottery, bronzeware, ironware and stoneware have been unearthed at the site.

Archaeologists said Qingzhuangzi had a long history of human habitation from the Bronze Age to the Han Dynasty (202 BC - 220 AD).

The richness of the world's only continuing civilization runs deep into the spirit and soul of China-and those who have come to repect and love it.

Which is the world's "only continuing civilization"??? Certainly not China. There are others, and older ones. By the way, Manchuria was not Chinese territory in those days.

I correctly stated that China is not the only continuing civilisation. There are so many others. I would mention Egypt, Iran, Greece. The Chinese one has only got a recorded 3600 years.
