Bin (Chineset , s , p Bīn) was a Chinese settlement during the Xia and Shang dynasties. It was said to be located between the Rong and Di barbarians.[citation needed] It was possibly located near Qingcheng in Gansu and is the modern namesake of Bin in Shaanxi.[citation needed]

Bin was the ancestral home of the Ji clan after Buzhu moved them from Tai after resigning his post in the Xia.[1] The clan maintained control over the settlement until Ancient Duke Danfu removed them again and led his people to Zhou along the Wei River.
