A brick-chambered tomb from the Song Dynasty was recently discovered at a construction site in Chengdu, Sichuan province.
A team of experts unearthed the tomb on Jan. 13. The length, width and height of the tomb are 3.15, 2.4 and 1.3 meters respectively.
Unfortunately, the tomb was partially damaged by a grave robbery. One side collapsed, and some of the burial objects were destroyed and stolen.
