Chinese archaeologists were recently surprised to find an ancient heating wall in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region in north China which can still be used.
The wall with flues for heating was discovered last Wednesday in Xinglongwa, a cultural relics site in Chifeng which can be traced back to 7,600 years ago.
However, the heating wall is believed to be younger than the whole relic site. Archaeologists from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and the regional archaeology institute said that the wall was used by ancient people 4,000 years ago.
