Archaeological Discoveries in So Kwun Wat

CLP Power Hong Kong Limited (CLP Power) has proposed the construction of an electric substation nearby So Kwun Wat Road. To preserve the cultural heritage in the So Kwun Wat archaeological site, the Office invited experts of the School of Archaeological and Museology, Peking University to jointly conduct a large-scale rescue excavation at the site in 2000. The Office and CLP Power present a permanent exhibition at the So Kwun Wat station to illustrate the archaeological work and discoveries in the site. Replicas of artefacts ranging from Neolithic Period to Ming dynasty are also displayed. It is hoped that through this exhibition public understanding of local archaeological work and heritage could be enhanced.
