Ancient bone soup found in NW China
From:  Writer:  Date:2010-12-13

 

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."
