Updated: 2017-08-31

 

 

Tanheli National Archaeological Park is set to officially open to the public after a trial operation since early June, in Changsha, Hunan province.

 

Covering 800 mu (53.33 hectares), the park is divided into three main areas—the Bronze Culture Museum, the City Wall Ruins and the Ruins Protection and Exhibition Center.

 

More than 2,000 bronze artifacts have been found over the past years at the Tanheli Ruins, located in the Huangcai township of Ningxiang county, winning the site a reputation of being the "Center of Bronze Culture in South China".

It's of great significance to explore and showcase the mystery bronze culture in Western Zhou Dynasties (c. 11th century-771 BC).

 

Visitors are able to get a close-up look at dazzling arrays of world-known archaeological findings, including a square zun (a wine vessel) decorated with the heads of four goats.

 

The Ruins Protection and Exhibition Center has also opened to the public after being under construction during the trial operation period, according to reports.
