China's Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City was on July 6 inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List as a cultural site, bringing the total number of the Asian country's sites on the list to 55.

“It is considered to be a supreme achievement of prehistoric rice-cultivating civilization of China and East Asia over 5,000 years ago and an outstanding example of early urban civilization.”Said a report by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), the committee's official advisory body.

Sitting on a plain in Hangzhou crossed by river networks in the Yangtze River Basin, the nominated property of Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City includes the archaeological remains of Liangzhu City (3300 BC-2300 BC), 11 early-stage dams, and high-level cemetery sites.

The property testifies to the existence of a regional state with a unified belief system and supported by a rice-cultivating agriculture in late Neolithic China. It also represents an early urban civilization with complex functions and structures.

7月6日,中国良渚古城遗址获准列入联合国教科文组织《世界遗产名录》。至此,中国世界遗产总数达55处,位居世界第一。

联合国世界遗产中心的咨询机构国际古迹遗址理事会表示:“良渚古城遗址展现了5000多年前存在于中国和东亚的史前稻作文明,也是早期城市文明的杰出范例。”

位于杭州的良渚古城遗址处于长江流域河网纵横的平原谷地,遗产构成要素包括公元前3300年至公元前2300年的城址、11条水坝和高等级墓地,有力佐证了中国新石器时代晚期以稻作农业为经济支撑,存在同一信仰体系的区域形态国家,也展现出拥有复杂功能和结构的早期城市文明。
