A kiln site of 1013.5 square meters was discovered in 2013 at Nanyao village in Jingdezhen, East China's Jiangxi province.

Several sites have been excavated, including two dragon kilns, 11 ash pits, one ash furrow and one road site.

Nearly 10 tons of culture relics have been unearthed, including a large number of kiln furniture and tile chips.
