3000-year-old wine vessel unearthed in Shaanxi

An ancient noble tomb built in the Western Zhou Dynasty was accidently discovered in a village in Baoji, Shaanxi province on June 22. After careful excavation, archaeologists have found a coffin, more than 20 pieces of elegant bronze wares and a 1 meter long “Jin”, a bronze wine vessel used to persuade people to refrain from drinking too much alcohol.
