PRD’S OLDEST VILLAGE, IN DONGGUAN

city-fact

Ruins of ancient pottery as well as tools made of bone that were over 5,000 were found at Haogang Village in Nancheng in 2003. Now known as Haogang Shell Mound Site, it marked the earliest evidence of humans living in Dongguan and was named the first village of the Pearl River Delta. In 2007, a museum was built near the site complete with stone-age skeleton and other artifacts. The lives of the first Dongguan residents were literally built on oyster shells: 6,000 ago when Nancheng district faced the sea and almost half of Dongguan and the PRD had not even been formed.
