The “new discovery” conference took place in Beijing on April 11, and the ceremony featured in Fengxiang County, Shaanxi, was selected as one of the ten new archaeological discoveries of China in the year of 2016.

Located in Xuechi Village, Liulin Town, northwest of Fengxiang County, the relic of Yongshan Blood Pool worship ceremony was being excavated starting 2016. The confirmation of 3200 excavation sites indicated the real discovery of cultural relics that can be dated back to Eastern Zhou Dynasty.

Despite that many historical masterpieces recorded the “Fiesta sites,” it is the first time for us to find one in real life. This finding of the site fills up a hole in the history regarding the “Fiesta Sites.”

This election process was made possible by Xi’an archaeological research institute for the protection of cultural relics and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. The Kunming Pool, excavated from 2012 to 2016, indicated the ancient hydraulic engineering technologies.
