Ar­chae­ol­o­gists re­cently found a large num­ber of kiln relics dat­ing back to the Sui Dy­nasty (581-618) in Ji­nan, Shan­dong prov­ince. The dis­cov­ery was made at a site in Ningyang county. Nearly 10,000 pieces of kiln equip­ment and 1,000 items of porce­lain were un­earthed. Xing Qi, a re­searcher at the pro­vin­cial ar­chae­o­log­i­cal re­search in­sti­tute, said the porce­lain — in­clud­ing bowls, cups, plates and pots — was mostly for daily use, but there were also some higher-end pieces. Ex­perts said the dis­cov­er­ies of­fer valu­able re­search ma­te­rial for the study of China’s porce­lain in­dus­try in the Sui Dy­nasty.
