1,800-Year-Old Tombs Discovered in Hebei
 

Archaeologists have found three ancient tombs in north China's Hebei Province, local cultural heritage department said on July 9.

Debris of old bricks was recently found in a construction site in Huanghua City. After excavation, archaeologists found three tombs dating back between the late Han Dynasty (202 BC to 220 AD) and the Three Kingdoms period (220-280).

Those tombs have been robbed several times and were badly damaged, according to archaeologists.

Only a few objects including a bronze mirror, some coins and bronze accessories were excavated from the tombs.

"Burial customs during this period were simplified, which has been proved by the features of these tombs," said Zheng Zhili, a cultural heritage expert, adding that findings from the tombs can help people understand the burial customs and the development of the economy and society during this period.
