Songze culture (simplified Chinese: 崧泽文化; traditional Chinese: 崧澤文化; pinyin: Sōngzé wénhuà) was a matriarchal Chinese Neolithic culture that existed between 3800–3300 BCE in the Lake Tai area near Shanghai.[1][2]

In 1957, at Zhaoxiang (zh) Town in Shanghai's Qingpu District, archaeologists discoved a Songze culture village on top of an earlier settlement attributed to the Majiabang culture.[3]
