China’s Lost Civilization: The Mystery of Sanxingdui
2002 North Main Street
These objects are a mystery representing CHINA’S LOST CIVILIZATION: THE MYSTERY OF SANXINGDUI on display at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana. Acknowledged by many scholars as one of the greatest archaeological finds ever unearthed, these were discovered by accident the summer of 1986.
The objects date back to about 1200 BC and reveal a sophisticated culture which excelled in bronze making. The mystery? The culture left no written record. There are no human remains and the people responsible for this appear to have existed for only about 350 years before they vanished.
