From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lajia (Chinese: 喇家; Pinyin: Lǎjiā) is an archaeological site located in Minhe County, Haidong Prefecture in Northwest China's Qinghai province. Lajia is associated with the Qijia culture and was discovered by archaeologists in 2000. The site covers an area of around 200,000 square meters. Archaeologists believe the site was abandoned after being devastated by an earthquake and subsequent flood.

In 2005, the oldest intact noodles yet discovered were located at Lajia, estimated at over 4,000 years old.[1] The noodles were made from foxtail and broom millet.
