Banpo Site

After tea, we headed to the Xi’an Banpo Museum. It is a 6000 year old prehistoric site of the Banpo people in the Neolithic age. It was a matriarchal clan community that was very egalitarian. We saw the residential, pottery-making, and burial sections. The museum had lovely reproductions of the setting and Banpo people.
