A tomb dating back to the Han Dynasty (202 B.C.-220 A.D.) has been found in north China's Hebei Province recently, the local cultural relics protection department said.
The tomb was accidentally found when villagers of Beianle Village were creating a garden. More than 20 pieces of silverware, bronzeware and pottery were unearthed from the tomb, which will contribute to research on the social history and ceramics of the Han Dynasty, China's News Agency (Xinhua) reported.
Located in the Beianle Township in the city of Wu'an, the ancient tomb measures 4.9 meters long, 2.25 meters wide and 2.3 meters high. The inner bricks were all fan-shaped, according to the cultural relics protection department of Wu'an.
Judging from the characteristics of the tomb and the unearthed items, archaeologists determined that the tomb might be from the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220), said Jia Mingtian, a department employee.
Archaeologists have found a stone table dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in northern China's Hebei province.
‘The table, believed to have been made during the reign of Wanli Emperor, is 418 years old and is 310 centimeters tall and 88 centimeters wide and 23 centimeters thick, and it has been well preserved and has clear inscriptions, Huachuang Village.’ (QNA)
