From:Xinhua Net  Writer:  Date:2017-11-03
Archaeologists have excavated a 2,400-year-old pit containing horses and chariots beside a tomb possibly belonging to a lord. The No. 3 Horse and Chariot Pit is one of a cluster of tombs belonging to noble families of the Zheng State, a vassal state during the Spring and Autumn (770-476 B.C) and Warring States periods (475-221 B.C), near the city of Xinzheng. Since February, four chariots and 90 horse skeletons have been unearthed from the pit.
