Neolithic (New Stone age) culture is on display at the Banpo Neolithic Village and museum  site located just east of the city of Xi’an in the Yellow River Valley of China. The archaeological site was discovered and excavated in 1953 and shows a typical village from the Banpo period (4800-3600 B.C.) of the neolithic and matriarchal Yangshao culture that lasted from around 5000-2800 B.C. The remains from the village including circular hut foundations, pottery, tools, and skeletons are on display in both the archaeological site and the museum. The top photo is a model of the village and the second is the excavation of the foundations of the village. The next two photos are models of life hunting and farming in the village and the last two are of pottery displayed in the museum.
