Oracle bones were bones inscribed with questions and answers. They were a major part of pre-Zen Buddhist religion in China, although they are not commonly used now. Early oracle bones provided the first archaeological evidence of the Shang dynasty.

Sample oracle bones were later brought to Europe by Marco Polo.
