Ancient tombs found in China
Construction workers dig up ancient Chinese secret burial place.
A total of 249 ancient tombs dating back to 2,000 years ago have been excavated under a middle school construction site in Handan, north China's Hebei Province. Workers also found more than 500 pieces of antiques. Hao Liangzhen, vice director of the Handan cultural heritage bureau, said Friday most of the unearthed tombs were from the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-220 A.D.), while others were from the Warring States Period (475-221 B.C.) and the Jin Dynasty (265 - 420).The site has a really cool photo of the tomb opening. If a director called Central Casting and said, "Send me down an old tomb opening discovered by construction digging. And make it snappy!" Central Casting would send this set to audition for the role knowing it was perfect for the part. (Don't you love my pretend dialogue, like movie directors still talk like they're in the 1930s?)
