A 2,400-year old bronze vessel containing soup with bones has been discovered in a tomb excavated in Xi'an, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province, Liu Daiyun, a Shaanxi Provincial Archeological Institute official said Saturday.
The vessel is 20 centimeters tall and has a 24.5 centimeters diameter. It contains bones soaked in liquid.
The archeologists also unearthed a bronze pot containing an odorless liquid, which may be an ancient wine, Liu said.
Experts will analyze the "bone soup" and "wine."
