Osservatorio astronomico Taosi

Taosi_Observatory_with_overlayTaosi ancient observatory forms part of the Taosi archaeological site, one of the most famous of the eighty or so Longshan Culture (c. 3000–2000 BC) sites in north China. At the Taosi site, a small walled-town of the Early Taosi Period (23rd and 22nd centuries BC) was superseded by two walled-towns of the Middle Period (21st century BC), the larger of which occupied 2.8km² and is the largest known walled-town in prehistoric China. The observatory is located within the lesser Middle Period walled-town, close to the inner south-eastern wall of the larger one.
