When the archaeological team, organized by the Museum of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region was investigating the palaeolithic remains in the Baise basin in 1982, a large amount of stone artifacts was encounted at 21 localities on the surface of III-IV terraces of You Jiang river in Baise county. The total number of the stone artifacts studied here is 752. Most of them are made of siliceous rock, sandstone, quartzite and vein quartz. They were divided ma-inly into three groups: points, chopping-tools and bifaces. The artifacts are considered typo-logically to be of Paleolithic in age.
