Story


  • Han Dynasty tombs discovered in east China (2019-08-08)
  • Two ancient tombs with delicate stone reliefs were discovered in Jinan city, east China's Shandong province, local archaeological authorities said Wednesday (7 August 2019). Located in Jinan's Jiyang District, the tombs are believed to date back to the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D. 220), according to the city's institute of archaeology. They were found when local residents dredged a pond at the end of 2018. After nearly four months of archaeological excavation work, a total of almost 60 stone reliefs and more than 90 portraits were unearthed in the tombs. They vividly depict scenes of daily life in ancient times, in addittion to several portraits of goat heads, which are commonly seen in tombs with stone reliefs in the region. The approximately 20-meter-long and 15-meter-wide tomb is said to be the largest double-passage tombs with stone reliefs from the Han Dynasty ever found in Jinan.    Photo by Imaginechina
