Wang Yufang, a graduate student from Taipei, has chosen an archaeological site in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region to carry out her practical training over the summer vacation.

Wang is undertaking work experience at the site of the seat of the ancient Beiting Old City, located at the National Archaeological Site Park in Jimsar County of Xinjiang.

There, she sorts through unearthed pieces of pottery, selects specimens, takes photos, and categorizes objects based on observation.

Wang is a first year graduate student from the Department of Archeology of the Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, majoring in physical anthropology.
 
"I think Xinjiang is an unknown place and it is well worth exploring," Wang said.
