Archaeologists working on the Beijing Forbidden City, which is 600 years old and officially known as the Palace Museums, have recently discovered the foundations of a building belonging to a previous dynasty on that site.

Below the old Royal Palace used by dynasties Ming and Qing (1368-1911), have found a building that could have belonged to the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368), explained Li Ji, a researcher at the Palace Museum Institute.

This complex was the home of various Chinese emperors and was, in turn, the highest center of power from 1420 to 1911. Li said the new finds could help understand the history of the site and the layout of ancient Beijing.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
