This is the No.2 House.
It was excavated in 1978, which from east to west the length is about 10 m, from north to south the width is about 8 m. There are about five-hundred-forty culture assets including earth-pottery、Stoneware,Bone, jadeware and wood carving. These art works were discovered from this site. It was thought that this site was primitive society matriarchal members to use for meeting.negotiation and public working.
In here, you can see many holes in the ground, each of which is equipped with a label. A label represents the place where an art work came from. For instance, the No. 7 is Fire keeping Area, other labels are stemmed bowl, stone axe, grinding stone, pottery pot, etc.. The finds from these sites point to the existence of a prosperous matriarchal society.
比如下面的7号大一点的坑就是火膛 ， 然后还有一些陶罐，石头斧子，陶钵，磨石，玉珠，木雕艺术品等等。这些发现的东西说明这里曾经 有过一个繁荣昌盛的母系氏族社会。
No.7 House 七号房
And then we came to the No.7 houses, we saw many models of primitive man, sitting around the fire, which vividly present the scene of their life.
If you see them carefully, you can see a few men working for the woman.
In the matriarchal society, the female are not only the main dint of the birth production and the agriculture production, but also the beam pillar of the spiritual production. So they had high status.
No.8 House 八号房
A large quantity of the unearthed historical relic prove that fishing and hunting were two important food sources for these Xinle people.
About 7000 years ago, the warm and humid weather of the northern hemisphere fed to the prosperity of vegetation and the Hun rivers provided the best natural environment to the pre-historical human life.
