Shards belonging to an 8th century vase have been unearthed in Nara, Japan.

Kanazawa University archaeology Professor Tatsuo Sasaki said the vase shards found at the former location of the Heijokyo palace were proof Nara once played a role in the extensive international trading route known as the Silk Road of the Sea, The Asahi Shimbun said Monday.

During Japan’s Nara Period of 710-784, Heijokyo was the country’s capital.
