Revelation 1 drains can still use hundreds of years
Location: southeast of the south three power capacity of pipeline power well site
Here, in the process of excavation archaeological experts found aproll of Ming dynasty and package by walls of overlying soil lining brick stone. Ancient buildings, the aproll to protect wall base is not affected by rain, using the ground around the exterior slope, used for drainage. Soil lining stone next to the wall, is to protect the wall.
