Beijing is a city in Northern China. Peking is the name of the city according to Chinese Postal Map Romanization and the traditional customary name for Beijing in English. The earliest remnants of human habitation in the Beijing municipality are found in the caves of Dragon Bone Hill near the village of Zhoukoudian in Fangshan District (where the Peking Man lived). Homo erectus fossils from the caves date back to 230,000 to 250,000 years ago. Today the Beijing Metropolitan area has an estimated population of 22 million people. The city hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics. This photo of the Beijing Skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 10th of February 2011.
