GUANGZHOU, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- Archaeologists have discovered 188 ancient ruins sites in a school in Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province.

Authorities found the ruins in an area of about 5,000 square meters scheduled for a reconstruction project at Guangdong Guangya High School, and excavation work began in July, according to the Guangzhou Municipal Institute of Cultural Heritage and Archaeology.
