Over 100 pieces of cultural relics and a cluster of tombs dating back up to 4,000 years were unearthed in Guangzhou, south China's Guangdong province.

After months of excavation, which started in December 2019, 65 tombs from the late Neolithic Age and the Zhou Dynasty (1046 B.C.-256 B.C.), were unearthed, with pottery, jade products and stone tools found, according to the Guangzhou Municipal Institute of Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Wednesday.

To date, more than 2,200 square meters of area has been excavated.

The unearthed artifacts provide clues to the cultural environment of the Pearl River Delta region and eastern and northern Guangdong, said an archaeologist with the excavation team.
