Shandong excavation sheds light on mistery of 2,600 years ago
From:CNTV  Writer:  Date:2012-04-17

 

 

An ancient tomb believed to date back 2,600 years is providing some clues to the culture of China’s Spring-and-Autumn Period.

The tomb in Yishui County, Shandong province is currently being excavated, with a number of relics having already been discovered. Judging from the bronzes already unearthed, as well as the scale and grandeur of the tomb, experts believe the owner may have been a high ranking local ruler.

The tomb has some unique features, including bronzeware found in the chambers where the owner’s chariots were laid -- something never seen before. The find is increasing archaeologists’ curiosity about the culture and local customs of the area.
