Peking Man Site at Zhoukoudian

The Peking Man Site at Zhoukoudian is an Upper Paleolithic hominid site that preserves 700,000 years of human history with the most abundant, systematic and valuable discoveries in the world, depicting living conditions of "Peking Man" 600,000 years ago, "New Cave Man" 100,000 years ago and “Upper Cave Man” 18,000 years ago.

Since the large-scale systematic excavation in 1927, 27 different fossils and cultural sites dating from various ages have been found at Zhoukoudian, producing over 40 fossilized typical remains of "Peking Man", 100,000 stone artifacts, almost 200 different types of animal fossils and a large quantity of firewood remains.

The Peking Man Site at Zhoukoudian was recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1987 and was bestowed the title of "World Heritage Young Education Base" by UNESCO's World Heritage Institute of Training and Research Center in the Asian-Pacific Region in 2011.
