After an early breakfast at 7.30 a.m we set off at 8.15, to visit a nearby archaeological site, before the long drive home. We passed some pleasant gardens, with magnificent displays of hollyhocks along the way and through some well kept farm buildings and small holdings. We lost the way a couple of times, but eventually found the large complex, with large buildings erected above some of the digs, going back about 3000 years. The old city was called Yinxu. There were even displays of ancient sewage pipes, showing they were quite advanced in that way, apart from the amazing bronze artworks.

This ancient city, was also the place where the Chinese form of writing began and a lot of them made sense, in that they represented words in the form of a kind of stick drawing, so you could easily recognize a man, woman for example, or a tree, fruit etc. There were even symbols for walking, picking fruit and it’s a pity they didn’t keep this form of writing, which is more easily recognizable, instead of the more complicated develpments of the language, as it is today in Chinese calligraphy.
One building housed 8 wooden chariots, fully preserved, but mostly still covered in the dried mud, in which they’d been found, to preserve the wood, over 3000 years, but you could make out the detail quite clearly. They had been buried with their horses and sometimes the driver. There were pictures depicting the form of warfare, shooting arrows from the chariots, in much the same way as we had in the UK in the bronze age, although we don’t have so many well preserved items, probably because of our damp conditions, where wood rots a lot faster.
The whole complex was well landscaped, with lawns, flower beds, lakes, in addition to the large buildings erected over the excavations. There was a large museum, built underground, with displays of pottery, bronzes, weapons and jade jewellery. Many of the weapons were similar to UK designs of the same period, although a lot more ornate.
Just a pity none of these places have tea rooms, where you can sit and relax during your visit, but we did buy a good example of a bronze pot, for 120 yuan. I wish we’d bought another one, at that price, but a carved bronze seal in the form of a dragon was a bit pricy at 350 yuan.
Then we drove back to the hotel to have a rest and make our own arrangements about lunch, then to meet the others to leave at 3.00 pm. We turned left out of The Green Tree Inn, walked along the road a bit and crossed over the other side, to find a basic kind of restaurant, halfway to Walmart. There was a special menu, with prices are 50 yuan, but we opted for the set lunch which was excellent, as weel and only cost 10 yuan. I had a plate of Kung Po with rice and Ling had some fired pork with soup and some fried wild greens. The meal was OK and apparently our group had

Not greatest museum I’ve toured, but as weather was poor, it made passing the time tolerable. G FB one for adults, but most children would be bored.

There are some interesting exhibits at this museum, but they are poorly exhibited, badly lit, and very sparingly described. If you go to Yin xu (which is probably why you go to Anyang) you can save your time.
