Chinese archaeologists unearthed ruins of a huge ancient construction with double corridors in Qingjian county, Shaanxi province in 2013. With a total dimension of 4,200 square meters, the ruin, which dates back to the late Shang Dynasty (17th Century B.C.-11th Century B.C.), is the second largest ruins discovered so far following Yin Dynasty ruins.

This discovery offers more information for the research on bronze ware and is also very significant for studying bronze culture and the political geography of that era.
