    The remains date back to the Neolithic period between 5,200 and 4,500 BC!

    Pretty cool.

    There are a lot of Neolithic agricultural "city" sites, Ban-Po is the most famous, in China. They all date between 5000 and 7000BCE. Most of them were millet growing cultures, not rice.

    The Indus River Valley civilization is another interesting one. Search Harappa on google for more information, there's a bunch of research going into these historical sites, fascinating stuff.
