The excavation covered an area of about 3,500 square meters. Most remains dated to the Zhou dynasty while the others to the Han dynasty, the Six dynasties, and the Song and Yuan dynasties. The remains of the Zhou dynasty included house sites, ash pits, ditches and pottery kilns, etc. The artifacts were mainly potteries as well as some stone wares and bronzes. According to the layers' relationship and features of excavated objects,the site could be divided into three development phases: the first one was from the late Western Zhou dynasty to the early Spring and Autumn period, the second was the mid Spring and Autumn period and the third from the late Spring and Autumn period to the early Warring States period. This excavation provided a lot of new materials for the research about the transition of small and middle-sized settlement sites and about the Chu culture at Danxi Basin.
