Jinsha is an archaeological site inChina's Sichuan province. The site is located in the Qingyang District of Chengdu Prefecture, along the Modi River (摸底河). It was named for a nearby street, itself named after the Jinsha River.
The Jinsha site was accidentally discovered in February 2001 during real estate construction. Located about 50 km away fromSanxingdui, the site flourished around 1000 BC and shares similarities in burial objects with the Sanxingdui site. Ivory, jade artifacts, bronze objects, gold objects and carved stone objects were found at the site. Unlike the site at Sanxingdui, Jinsha did not have a city wall. Jinsha culture (1200–650 BC) was a final phase of Sanxingdui culture and represents a relocation of the political center in the ancient Shu Kingdom.The city was built on the banks of the Modi River.
