 Unique Discovery: Archaeologists Find 25 Qing Dynasty Tombs< /p>

25 tombs from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) have been discovered by archaeologists in Dong'an County, Yongzhou City, Hunan Province, in Central China. This was reported by the Institute of Cultural Relics and Archeology of the province, Xinhua News Agency reported.

More than 60 items were also found in the tombs, including porcelain jugs and bowls, copper hair clips and knives. According to the inscriptions on the tombstones, the burials date back to the middle and late periods of the Qing Dynasty.

Li Yiyuan, a researcher at the institute, said food remains were found in some jars. At that time, there was a local custom to leave food in the tombs, which has survived to this day.

According to him, the orderly arrangement of the tombs indicates that this is a family and clan burial. Husband and wife can be buried in tombs located close to each other.

“This discovery is of great scientific value for studying the funerary traditions, history and culture of southern China during the Qing Dynasty”, – emphasized Li Yiyuan.
