A rich assemblage of typical Late Palaeolithic stone tools was found at the Xiachuan Culture sites in Shanxi Province, China. The greyish-brown soil layer in the upper part of Stratum I (radiocarbon dated to ca. 20,000 b.p. or earlier) at the site of Fuyihe yielded a large amount of Xiachuan Culture lithics. The Xiachuan assemblage is representative of the Late Palaeolithic in North-Central China, and it includes blade cores and various microblade cores, burins, backed blades, scrapers, flakes, and cores. The microblade cores are of two principal types: wedge-shaped and conical. There are also some large stone implements such as adze-shaped objects, stone hammers, stone grinding slabs, and stone bowls. This article distinguishes six classes of Xiachuan burins.
