The highest-level tomb from Chu Kingdom with over 2,200 years of history is found in China

About the discovery was said at a press conference in Huainan


The State Administration for Cultural Heritage Protection of China informed about the discovery in Huainan city, located in Anhui province in East China, the largest to date ancient tomb, which belonged to the upper class of the times of the Chu kingdom, as reported CGTN, a partner of TV BRICS.

Chu is a kingdom that existed in ancient China more than 2200 years ago.

Archaeologists focused on the excavation of the main vertical earthen burial pit. So they confirmed that it was a large structure with a wooden outer coffin in the middle.

The researchers did the necessary work to protect the artefacts found at the site. Interdisciplinary studies have also been made, fragile items such as chamber boards, bamboo mats and lacquered items have been strengthened and removed.

Archaeological work will continue. The artefact conservation and interdisciplinary research at Wuwandong aims to shed light on the rituals, crafts and cultural achievements of the Chu Kingdom during the late Warring Kingdoms period. The Warring Kingdoms period lasted from 475 BC to 221 BC.
