Latest Updated by 2006-08-14 16:18:57

A group of ancient tombs, consisting of 58 catacombs, was excavated in Guangdong's Shaoguan recently. Most of these tombs are well preserved and marked with the exact dates that each tomb was constructed.

This group of tombs was built ranging from Xijin Dynasty to Tang Dynasty, with a history of more than 500 years and covering over 30 thousand square meters.

A large amount of ancient china, earthenware and bronze has been unearthed. Experts believe that this discovery is important because it will provide information about burial traditions, history and migration habits of the Hakka.
