With an area of 320,000 sq. meters, Dadiwan Site is a New Stone Age that dates back 7,800 to 4,800 years, displaying the culture of nearly 3,000 years, which is very rare in the archeological history in China.
The houses of the early period in Dadiwan Site are mainly half-crypt that assume a round shape with a diameter of 2-3 meters and a fire pit in the middle of the room.

Processed stones are used to pave the ground, and cement was used to fill in the gaps between the stones. The late-period houses were mainly built on the ground, and there appeared high and grand palaces then.
