Chinese bone inscriptions discovered to be 1000 yrs older than previous finding





Recently discovered bone inscriptions in a province in China have been analyzed to be approximately 1000 years older than those found in another area in the country, which indicates the new finding to be the oldest record of Chinese language.

The Changle inscriptions were found in Weifang city of Shandong Province in China.

According to Professor Liu Fengjun, doctoral supervisor in art and archaeology at Shandong University, the markings on Changle bones represent some kind of original characters of Chinese language approximately 1000 years older than those found in Yinxu.

Hence, the discovery of Changle bone inscriptions may have far-reaching implications.
