Neolithic axes, adzes and chisels have been found in Southern Tibet.

Experts of the Shaanxi Provincial Archeology Research Institute and the Tibet Autonomous Regional Cultural Relics Research Institute judged that the stonewares belonged to the Neolithic Age and that the river banks where the stoneware were found saw frequent human activities in ancient times.

Cui Xiaodong, director of the bureau, said that the discovery is of vital importance to the research on the production and living conditions of human ancestors living in Medog County and the Yarlung Zangbo River Canyon.
