A set of human skeletal remains dating back to the Shang and Zhou Dynasties was found on March 25, 2015 at an archaeological site at the Qihe caves being excavated by the Fujian Museum and the Zhangping Culture and Recreation Bureau. Researchers also discovered a number of pottery shards from the Neolithic period, copper ornaments and burial objects made of tortoise plastron beneath the remains.
