Prehistory pottery later than those of the Yangshao culture

It was unearthed at Aohan Banner (county), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.”

Archeologists have also found whole arrays of primitive pottery utensils as old as those of the Yangshao culture or produced later.  These belong, separately, to the Hongshan culture of northeast China, Dawenkou culture of Shandong Province, Majiayao culture of northwest China and Qijia and Xindian culture that came later, Daxi and the Qujialing cultures of southern China, and the Yunshishan culture prevalent in coastal areas of southeast China.

Even places like Xinjiang and Tibet are home to prehistory ruins from where painted pottery utensils have been excavated. A limited number of painted pottery utensils have been found in some prehistory sites in Taiwan Province, including Dawenkeng at Taibei and Fengbitou at Gaoxiong.  These are seen as material evidence to contacts between prehistory Chinese on either side of the Taiwan Strait.
