Archaeologists say an ancient Chinese arrowhead unearthed in Okayama City in Western Japan is the first of its kind discovered in the country.

The bronze arrowhead has been dated to the Warring States period of ancient Chinese history, 475 B.C. to 221 B.C., China's state-run Xinhua news agency reported Thursday.

Researchers said the Chinese artifact, a "double-winged bronze arrowhead," was unearthed at the Minamigata ruins located in the city center of Okayama.

These presentations are quite useful to assist in teaching history to anyone, even out of the K-12 range. Reading through them myself, the geography, religion, recreational practices, even the food are well explained within the bodies of the concise enough text.

China unearths ancient palace ruins: state media

China unearths ancient palace ruins: state media | World History in Social Studies | Scoop.it

China has unearthed the ruins of an ancient palace near the tomb of the country's first emperor that was already famed for its terracotta soldiers, state media said on Saturday.

The discovery is the latest at the mausoleum, which dates back more than two millennia and became one of the greatest modern archaeological finds after a peasant digging a well stumbled upon the life-size warriors in 1974.

The palace "is the largest complex ever found at the cemetery", the Xinhua news agency said, citing Sun Weigang, a researcher at the archaeology institute of northern Shaanxi province where the site is located.
