1.3.3 Ban Po Museum, Xian

Xian Banpo Museum is the first prehistoric site museum built-in 1958 since liberation. The remains and cultural relics unearthed show the brilliant intelligence of Banpo people in the Neolithic age.

Banpo was a matriarchal clan community of the Yangshao culture in the Neolithic age. It is divided into three sections: the residential, the pottery-making, and the Burial Section. Some of the important remains are a large moat, a small ditch, house relics, storage pits, pottery kilns, and a worship place. The main relics show us the development of the primitive civilization of the Yellow River Valley.
