Archaeologists have found Neolithic pottery as well as axes and knives made of stone during an excavation in East China's Zhejiang province.

Discovered by an amateur archaeologist in May 2014, the site in Xiaozhi township of Linhai city is believed to have been a dwelling place around 8,500 years ago, said Jiang Leping, a research fellow with the Zhejiang provincial institute of archaeology, on Tuesday.

The site shows features of the ancient Shangshan and Kuahuqiao cultures, and it should help historians understand Neolithic life in Southeast China, Jiang told Xinhua.
