Submerged ancient village appears after reservoir dries up

A submerged ancient village appeared after a reservoir dried up due to drought in eastern China.

The drone video, filmed in the city of Ningbo in Zhejiang Province on February 28, shows the 120,000,000-cubic-metre Jiaokou Reservoir drying up, revealing the stone foundations of an ancient village's houses, which were submerged 50 years ago.

People in Dajiao Ancient Village were relocated to a nearby area after local authorities built up a dam as a flood defence, which also created a reservoir over the village site.

According to local villagers, the current drought was the worst one since the reservoir was built.
