Chinese archaeologists have discovered a 50-meter-long city wall from the Song Dynasty (960-1279) on southern China’s island province of Hainan.

The adobe wall, discovered in August in Yacheng Town, Sanya City, is believed to be the wall of Yazhou City, China’s southern-most city more than 2,000 years ago, Dr. Liu Chang of the Archaeology Study Center of the South China Sea at Sun Yat-sen University said Monday.

The discovery has proved the existence of adobe city walls in Song Dynasty as described in historical records, said He Qingguo of the city’s cultural relics protection department.
