They found that Xinglong Region, Tuxiang Region and Taihe Region have a typical Karst topography be formed in ancient times. There are a lot of caves which suitable for people to live in. There are cultural relics of Homo Sapiens Times be discovered. Majiawan Cave in Qingquan Village of Xinglong Town is a typical cave relic. Archeologists found dozens of fossils of Ailuropoda Melanoleuca Baconi, Asiatic Black Bear, Oriental Stegodon, Chinese Rhino, South China Giant Tapir, Sambar and more than 200 of stone implements after they made a small-scale trial excavation in the cave. Those fossils of stone implements and rare animals indicate that there was a profound culture here.

This kind of comparative analysis has great significance in the research of the inheritance and change of the regional culture.
