    Many cultural ruins of the Neolithic Age are found around Linzi. This museum details the cultural relics that have been discovered in the surrounding area. There is some english signage but a chinese/english guide is helpful. The museum is a bit pricy (30Y) but very well organized throughout 3 floors! An great way to end the day in historic Linzi.

    You'll see two pits containing ancient horse-and-chariot funeral pits. They predate Xi'an's terracotta army by more than 300 years!! The pits have been left as they were found. The first pit has the remains of 10 chariots and 32 horses. From what I read I believe that the horses are believed to have been anesthetized and then burried. The second pit has less horses and chariots but is just as impressive. You are able to get a very close look which is a bit eerie but fasinating! Definitly worth a visit!!!

    This is definitly worth a visit if you are in the Zibo area. The tomb was unearthed in 1982, and features 106 horses arranged in two rows. You can get a very close look which is fascinating!! The tomb is believed to belong to Qi Jing, the 25th monarch of the Qi State.
