A group of kilns dating from the New Stone Age, the largest find of its kind in China so far, have been unearthed in a hillside orchard of Hutoupu of Mianyuan Village, Guangtai Town, Puning City of Guangdong Province.
After being buried for about 4,000 years, the discovery of the kilns has enabled archeologists to determine for the first time how people of the Chaoshan area were able to carry out specialized pottery production in remote antiquity.
The discovery was actually made early this year, but details of the site were released as part of a group of important new archeological discoveries announced at the Fifth Chao Studies International Seminar held in Jieyang, Guangdong Province, on November 10.
