Archaeologists find ancient tombs
From:Xinhua News  Writer:  Date:2011-10-12

 

Archaeologists in Jiangxi Province have unearthed more than 50 cultural relics from a cluster of tombs dating back about 1,400 years, sources with the provincial archaeological institution said on Tuesday.

Excavation work started in August, and archaeologists have retrieved more than 50 pieces of celadon ware from six tombs believed to have been built during the Sui Dynasty (581-618) and early Tang Dynasty (618-907), said Wang Shanghai, deputy chief of the Jiangxi Archaeological Study Center.

Wang said the tombs are thought to belong to a family, judging by their array. The largest tomb is 7.65 meters long and 2.2 meters wide.

The celadon ware, mostly including household utensils like pots, bowls and inkstone, were products from the then-famous Hongzhou Kiln, said Zhang Wenjiang, an archaeological research fellow with the center.
