Cliff carvings found


ARCHAEOLOGISTS have found numerous cliff carvings in the mountainous areas of the Alxa Right Banner in Inner Mongolia.  

Over 800 vivid and life-like pictures, depicting people and animals, as well as scenes of hunting, battles and sacrificial rites are carved or engraved on the rocks, dating back to the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) and the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).  

The Inner Mongolia is home to over 6,000 rock carvings going back 2,000 years. – People's Daily
