Located in the vicinity of M1380, the remains of two humans have been discovered at sacrificial pit M1382. A jade dagger-axe was found on one of the persons, and in addition, a bronze spoon has been unearthed at the site. Similar to the other bronze spoon (R001097) being displayed, this bronze spoon is an implement for ladling water. It has a capacity of 50 ml. The spoon lacks any kind of motif or ornamental pattern, and a large hole is on the handle, indicating that it is likely able to connect to other objects, a remarkably rare find. The size of the jade dagger-axe is small with a length of 5.2 cm, and the dagger-axe similarly lacks any kind of motif or ornamental pattern.
