The Baoduncun Culture, named after prehistoric walled settlements in the Chengdu Plain, was a regional archaeological culture distributed in the western part of the Sichuan Basin along the upper reaches of the Yangzi River and centered in the Chengdu Plain. Dating from the Late Neolithic (or Chalcolithic) and contemporaneous with the Long-shan cultures of northern China, its recent discovery constitutes a major achievement in the clarification of the pre-Qin archaeological sequences in southwestern China. The Baoduncun Culture, like the Sanxingdui Culture that followed it, is highly instructive demonstrating the special status that the Sichuan Basin, particularly its western portion, holds as a place of origin and a center of development of ancient civilization in the upper Yangzi River valley.
