At the Shaochai Site in Gongyi city of Henan province, a large number of cultural relics were discovered. The discovery of large bones (used in sacrificial rituals) and proto-porcelains indicates that the settlement at the Shaochai area during the Erlitou Culture (around 1735 BC-1530 BC) and the Erligang Culture (around 1600 BC-1400 BC) not only was of higher rank, but also occupied an important position.
