In a recent archaeological excavation of Wangjinglou heritage site in Xinzheng City of Henan Province, Zhengzhou Academy of Cultural Relics and Archaeology accidentally [say what?] discovered two large-scale ancient city ruins from the Xia and Shang dynasties with a total area of nearly 1.7 million square meters.
According to archaeologists' initial speculation, the city from the Xia period might have been the capital of a kingdom, while the city in Shang period might have been an important garrison town.
