Remains of an ancient, 5,100-year-old hydraulic system excavated in China


Researchers have come across what is believed to be
the oldest hydraulic system on the planet. Archaeologists
discovered how ancient people living in the Yangtze River
Delta managed to ‘terraform their landscape’ by altering
10,000 hectares of land, and somehow moving approximately
3.3 million cubic meters of land. Chinese archaeologists
have discovered one of the largest water management
projects in the ancient world, on what is now part of
the eastern coast of modern China.

The results are unprecedented in learning about
the timing, structure, and function of a large-scale complex
of dams, levees, ditches, and other water-controlling
features in ancient China. Together with the well-excavated
remains of Liangzhu city and its rice fields, the new findings
represent one of the largest efforts of hydraulic landscape
engineering in the ancient world.

Another piece of lost history that shows an advanced understanding
of mass production farming …. well before we thought possible .

And all this to support one small city ?
…. or specialised trade and export ?

Ancient history hands out another lesson
