Hemudu Village Introduction

Hemudu Village is located in Yuyao County, Zhejiang Province. It was discovered accidentally by local farmers in the summer of 1973. The village covers an area of about 40,000 square meters. It is an important village relic of the New Stone Age. The relics have four cultural layers overlapped. Rows of wooden poles and board stakes were orderly arranged along the small hill in the village. This was a railing-style construction, with large stake of 23 meters long and 7 meters deep and the front porch about 1.3 meters deep. Most of these wooden poles had mortises and tenons, the earliest o­nes that have been found in China indicating that such kind of techniques were adopted then.

Hemudu Village Features

Large amount of rice was unearthed at the relics. The well-preserved rice proved to be cultivated rice. The large amount of well-preserved rice with a wide distribution area made the Hemudu Relics rare Neolithic relics in China. Other objects include tools used in agricultural production and processing, such as the bone plough, wooden box, bone sickle, and timber. These proved that agricultural production has become a main sector in local area 6,000 and 7,000 years ago.

Other relics included pig, sheep and human head figures made of pottery, and bone-enchased and ivory-enchased objects.
