Chinese officials have unveiled the discovery of a Ming dynasty Great Wall fort site in northwest Shaanxi province. According to state media, Qingping Fort was unearthed in April 2020 in Yulin city. Since then, the Shaanxi Academy of Archaeology has been carrying out excavations that uncovered two well-preserved courtyards, including one measuring 60 metres (197 feet) by 25 metres (82 feet). An inscription found at the site shows the courtyard was a temple called Xianying Palace.
