An exhibition of the history and culture of Zhejiang Province in east China is ongoing at the Capital Museum in Beijing, with nearly 450 artifacts on display, representing several of its important historical period. 

The Hemudu Neolithic culture, which existed 7,000 years ago in today's Yuyao, is the first period featured.  

The Liangzhu culture, a civilization that ran from 4,300 to 5,300 years ago, is also highlighted, with jade articles from that period showcased. The Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City in Zhejiang's provincial capital, Hangzhou, was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in July.  

The development of porcelain in Zhejiang took off during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), and celadon pieces produced during that period are also on display. 

The Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) marked another pinnacle in the ancient history of Zhejiang when Hangzhou became the dynastic capital. Celadon and gold and silver wares from that dynasty are also featured.
